Capsule filling is commonly used to fill capsules with powders, granules or liquids containing pharmaceutical ingredients.

At Micro-Sphere, we are experts in the fast, flexible, and efficient filling of hard gelatin capsules of any size for oral and inhalation products.

Using the latest capsule filling technology, we have the resources, flexibility, and capabilities to meet the full range of project requirements, from clinical trial capsule filling in small quantities, to full-scale commercial supply and inhalation capsule filling.

Our capsule filling capabilities

We have invested in a range of capsule filling machines focusing on the two most common filling techniques for hard capsules: drum filling and dosator filling. These are used in combination with highly precise weighing modules, sensors, and control systems to guarantee the highest quality of products in every batch.

Our filling capabilities range from one digit mg to triple digit mg filling weight.

Through our partnership with a high-speed blister and packaging company, we can also support you through to the next stage of your project.
