ACG Capsules (ACGC) – part of ACG Group, the only supplier in the world offering end-to-end manufacturing solutions for the pharmaceutical industry – has introduced a new line of HPMC capsules meeting a wide variety of pharmaceutical and nutraceutical needs. The new ACGcaps™ H+ capsule with no gelling agent is suitable for hygroscopic and moisture-sensitive formulations. It also meets consumer demands for clean label and vegetarian capsule options.
ACGcaps™ H+ Capsule complies with requirements of dissolution performance across all biological pH range, since it is pH-independent and non-ionic. These capsules also reduce cross-linking problems, which can occur with gelatin-based capsules and cause retarded dissolution performance.
ACGcaps™ H+ capsules are suitable for filling granules, powders, pellets for prescription and non-prescription pharmaceutical ingredients, nutraceutical dietary supplements and traditional medicines.
“The new and enhanced range of HPMC capsules is designed to give pharma and nutraceutical customers added peace of mind by providing product protection and desired formulation release. The new line contains no gelatin, wheat, gluten, animal by-products or starch, making it ideal for supporting clean label claims and vegetarian diets,” said Selwyn Noronha, CEO for ACG Capsules.
