Capsugel’s Press-Fit® and XPress-Fit® gelcap proprietary technology lets you enrobe caplets with high-gloss gelatin covers that consumers and patients prefer.
Use Press-Fit and XPress-Fit gelcaps to create a new look for your product, helping it stand out to consumers and increase sales.
Our proprietary PressFit and Xpress-Fit technology comes with distinctive benefits:
In addition, XPress-Fit gelcaps can be manufactured with a unique fluid access channel for faster onset – a rapid-release feature exclusive to XPress-Fit gelcaps. Gastric fluid enters channels on the exposed caplet surface, accelerating drug release.
Unlike competing gel-enrobing technologies, Press-Fit and XPress-Fit gelcaps can easily be manufactured in-house with minimal investment. Capsugel has collaborated with IMA, a leading manufacturer of capsule filling machines, to develop a specialized machine for filling Press-Fit and XPress-Fit gelcaps of all sizes.
For companies that prefer to outsource manufacturing, the Press-Fit or XPress-Fit production technology is available from several leading contract manufacturers.
