Two-piece gelatin, plant-based and hypromellose drug-delivery capsules

Qualicaps has a strong record of pioneering products, each showing the company’s high-standards and innovation.

Quali-G™ is made from 100% bovine bone gelatin and demonstrates excellent mechanical properties. It is available for oral delivery, and delivery by inhalation.

Qualicaps also offers a capsule with a dissolution profile equivalent to gelatin capsules, but with a lower moisture content of between 4% and 6%.

Quali-V® is ideal for hygroscopic drugs, and can be filled with various types of formulations such as powders, tablets, semi-solids, pellets and non-aqueous liquids.

Based on Quali-V®, Quali-V®-I capsules offer key aerosolisation properties. They enable more uniform-dosing, as they are specially formulated for use in dry powder inhalers (DPI).

Some of the advantages of Quali-V®-I include proven puncturing performance, reduced powder adhesion, minimal microbial levels, and a reduced static charge than gelatin.

UV laser printers marks surface of tablets and soft gels

Qualicaps designs and manufactures UV laser printers. Without the use of ink, UV laser printing marks the surface of tablets and soft gels.

The UV laser printer has many benefits, including the elimination of defects caused by ink, flexible design options, a large print surface and manufacturing cost reduction.

Other advantages include the potential to help with counterfeiting, reducing medical errors and differentiating your brand.
