What is Encapsulation?
Encapsulation Definition | Pharmaceutical encapsulation is the containment of a solid or liquid dose of a drug in a soft shell or hard pre-formed capsule. Hard and soft capsules are typically made from gelatin but alternatives such as HPMC are available. Capsule fill weight is a critical attribute in encapsulation and various real time fill weight monitoring techniques such as NIR and vibrational spectroscopy are used, as well as in line weight checks, to ensure product quality.
