Coni-Snap® hard gelatin capsules (HGCs) have been a product of choice for Biopharmaceuticals and Consumer Health Care companies due to their reliable, outstanding performance - since their unique locking closure was introduced. They are the most widely used capsule in the world for many reasons but key to their success is the fact they were designed and engineered to perform.
Quality by Design (QbD) initiatives have become a new priority in Biopharmaceutical manufacturing as companies are caught between heightened regulatory scrutiny and the demand for greater operational efficiency. The key principle of QbD is to build more robust and tighter process capabilities with reduced variation—to build the quality into the product and the processes in order to reduce reject rates.
In 2013, Capsugel launched the first stage in a paradigm shift for quality in capsules with the introduction of Coni-Snap Sigma Series capsules. Sigma Series capsules is the designation given to all capsules manufactured to sigma quality standards—with quality measured to a parts per million (PPM) level instead of the industry standard Acceptable Quality Levels (AQL) percentages. All Capsugel capsules—printed and unprinted—will be the product of this unparalleled increase in quality standards as this implementation schedule rolls out across all products and around the world through 2016 and 2017.
