CODE (Customised Oral Dosage Encapsulation)

Special Purpose Encapsulation includes filling combinations of granules, pellets, powder, mini & micro tablets, capsules, and softgels, into a capsule.

Reasons for Combination Filling:

1. Combination of molecules
2. Combination of release profile (IR + DR + XR)
3. To overcome Patent Challenges (Innovator Patents)
4. Improve patient compliance (One Dose for the Patient)

With the increase in the need of Pharma companies to enhance the bioavailability and stability of their drugs, while maximizing patient compliance, there was a requirement for a cost effective and reliable solution. Through years of R&D, all these features are now packed under one name – CODE.

Customized Oral Dosage Encapsulation or CODE is a series of custom-made attachments for special encapsulation needs. Retrofittable on a successful range of encapsulation machines developed and manufactured by ACG, the CODE Series give pharmaceutical companies an advantage of filling combinations of granules, pellets, powder, mini & micro tablets, capsules, and softgels, into a capsule.

The objective of this webinar is to overview innovative solutions available for Special Purpose Filling of Tablets / Pellets / Capsules in Capsules / Liquids, etc.

This webinar will focus on:

 Technique of Standard and Combination filling of capsules,
 Challenges with partial filling,
 Advantages / Reasons for combination filling

Our experts would present following Case Studies on combination fillings:
• Powders and their combinations
• Tablets / Multitablets and their combinations
• Microtablets
• Pellets, their combinations
• Soft Gel in hard gel encapsulation with combination filling
• Capsule in Capsule encapsulation with combination filling
• Containment Capsule filling

ACG has been offering a wide range of manufacturing, packaging and R&D solutions to the global pharmaceutical industry for over fifty years. With this vast experience and technical expertise, our experts will share insights on true potential of combination filling and how it could be a game changer for the pharmaceutical industry.
