About Capsule-in-Capsule Manufacturing
A new development in capsules, capsule-in-capsules contain a liquid or dry pre-filled smaller capsule inside of an outer liquid-filled larger capsule for the purposes of combination or dual controlled release. Either or both capsules may be of gelatin or HPMC composition and, if necessary, can be coated.
Capsule-in-Capsule Manufacturing Attributes
The capsule-in-capsule form allows for better release profiles that more precisely meet a customer’s target release. With capsule-in-capsule technology, you have the option of immediate, extended, pulsed, or delayed release, unlike that of other forms. This allows for delivery of supplement or OTC compounds to two different regions of the GI tract, and even delivery to the colon with the addition of enteric coatings.
Capsule-in-Capsule Manufacturing Process
Our FDA-registered, GMP facility can produce up to 1.5 million capsule-in-capsules per day. Capsule-in-capsule supplements are manufactured using specialty liquid-filling techniques and custom-designed filling equipment. Each capsule-in-capsule product at Ion Labs is manufactured with a vigilant attention to quality, going through an extensive product testing process by our in-house Quality Control and Research & Development teams. This ensures each batch meets quality and safety standards, regulations, product requirements, and customer needs.
