Soft Gel Capsule
A softgel capsule is a solid capsule (outer shell) surrounding a liquid or semi-solid center (inner fill). They are oral dosage form for medicine similar to capsules. Softgel shells are a combination of gelatin (bovine/ porcine), water, opacifier and a plasticizer such as glycerin.Diverse size and colours are available, and the fill weight is from 300mg to 1200mg.
Advantages of Softgels
Tablets are compressed solid unit dosage form containing medical ingredients and excipients. They may vary in size, shape, weight, hardness, thickness, disintegration and dissolution characteristics and in other aspects, depending on intended use and method of manufacture. Most tablets are used in the oral administration of medical ingredients. Many of these are prepared with colourants and coatings of various types. Various kind tablets are available including chewable tablets. The fill weight is from 400mg to 2000mg depending on the characteristics of ingredients.
Advantages of Tablets
Hard capsules also known as hard-shell capsules or two-piece capsules are solid dosage forms in which one or more medicinal agents are enclosed within a small shell. They are a well-established dosage form that provides solutions to many of today’s drug delivery and nutraceuticalformulation challenges. Empty hard capsule shells provided by Nutralab come in a variety of sizes ranging from an arbitrary numbering of 00 to 2 with 00 being the largest size and 2 being the smallest. Besides traditional gelatin hard capsules, we provide high quality vegetable hard capsules as well.
Advantages of Hard Capsules
Powders are very cost-effective and offer great dosing flexibility. Powders are more practical for supplements which should be taken in larger quantities. Nutralab offers different solutions of powder formula with great taste. Effervescent powders create a carbonated drink when added to room-temperature water. This dosage form is great for patients who don’t tolerate solid forms (e.g.capsules/tablets) and require a high dose of the active ingredients. The combination of the carbonation and the flavour can cover the negative taste of the active ingredient.
Advantages of Powder
