Shell component and composition are important factors while manufacturing empty capsules. Gelatin or a non-gelatin polymeric material such as hypromellose, water, starch, and plasticizer is used in manufacturing hard or soft gelatin capsule shells. Different coatings can be used on shells in order to achieve the desired therapeutic action once the capsule is administered to the patient. For instance, enteric coated capsules are designed to release the drug in the intestine. Moreover, sustained release capsules are designed to release the drug ingredients slowly over a longer duration of time. Capsules can also be manufactured to achieve local effect, while bypassing the first pass metabolism such as rectal capsule, which are inserted into the rectal cavity. However, requirement of a capsule filling machine is important as filling each capsule by hand is time consuming.
