Why attend?

Liquid-filled capsules are one of the most profitable and promising strategies to face the multiple challenges that the pharmaceutical and consumer healthcare industries face today. With an increasing number of Highly Potent Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients, poorly soluble ingredients, probiotics, biologicals and others within company pipelines, the applications for liquid-fill encapsulation have considerably increased in recent years.

Liquid-filled capsules provide functional advantages that enable the successful development of new complex pharmaceutical and nutraceutical formulations. Liquid-forms can overcome many of the ingredients’ troubling physical and chemical properties (solubility, moisture-sensitivity, hygroscopicity, oxidation, etc.) that affect the effectiveness and efficacy of the final product.

On the business side, the liquid-filled capsule solutions can help accelerate the speed to market by reducing development time, reformulating old products, re-introducing them in a new form, and lengthen product lifecycles and patent protection.

Qualicaps invites the interested audience to hear from our liquid-filling experts the critical benefits of hard liquid-fill capsules, focusing on practical applications such as how to formulate low and very low viscosity liquid products until now challenging to handle with existing capsules on the market.
