Our biopharmaceutical customers are continually motivated to speed the pace of discovering and developing novel products that will help improve people’s lives. Capsugel is partnering with an ever-expanding set of companies – both large and small – to overcome several challenges inherent in this quest. With a fundamental understanding of APIs that comes from advancing thousands of drug compounds from early feasibility studies to clinic and commercialization, predictive models and expert systems for selecting the optimal enabling technologies, we are bringing design to the CDMO space, which is helping our customers accelerate their product development cycles.
Leveraging our extensive experience in pharmaceutical delivery science, Capsugel’s technology platforms also are enabling our consumer health and nutrition customers to bring new and improved products to market.

We also bring to the table a wealth of consumer research and insight, and a team of business development personnel that is dedicated to helping customers differentiate their offerings in a crowded marketplace.
