Process of Manufacturing Oral Drugs (Capsule)
Capsules are solid dosage forms in which substances are enclosed in either a soft or hard, soluble container or shells of suitable forms of gelatins. Capsules have the advantage of being tasteless, easily administered and easily in large quantities commercially. Capsule can be categorized into three – based on their mode of fabrication, based on their use and based on their physical form. For the production of the capsule starts with the dispense of the raw material. The raw material then undergoes the process of granulation where sieving is done and various binders are added. This is followed by drying, sizing and blending of the material. This material now goes for capsule filling after that goes for capsule polishing. After that all the capsules goes for primary packaging then secondary packaging.
