Capsule Filling Containment and Easy Cleaning
Capsule filling specialist Capsugel has launched the CFS 1500 C filling and sealing system, aimed at lipid-based formulations or potent compounds for early-phase clinical trials. The system uses Capsugel’s Licaps technology and builds on the company’s CFS 1200, with extra features to aid cleaning and the addition of containment. Moving parts can be removed easily for cleaning, so researchers can be confident of avoiding contamination when working with lipid-based formulations or potent compounds. The system can fill and seal 1,500 capsules per hour. It features new drip-free precision dosing technology, new software, and a new weigh cell to ensure compliance with 21 CFR part 11.
