Overcoming Challenges in Capsule Filling

Filling capsules is a very common activity in pre-clinical and first-in-man studies, but how this is carried out typically depends on the throughput required and the resources available. Manual capsule filling is tricky and can present potential error and safety risks. Automated capsule filling machines are often expensive, in terms of investment, maintenance and cleaning requirements. Low-cost capsule boards are an extremely fast but inflexible method of filling capsules, with several drawbacks.

This white paper discusses safe, accurate and cost-effective semi-automated solutions that bridge the gap between challenging manual filling methods and costly high-throughput systems. User safety and process optimization in terms of error reduction and data security is also discussed.
