The capsules are made from hard gelatin. It is the same process and substance used for capsules manufactured for human use. They meet all FDA standards as well as USA, European, and Japanese Pharmacopeia standards.

These gelatin capsules are designed to dissolve in vivo at 37°C (98°F) within 15 minutes. Gelatin is physiologically inert so it will not react with most test materials or effect their bioavailability. When using capsules for dosing animals, you can be sure that the exact and complete dose has been administered. And unlike gavage, when you use capsules you don’t have the problem of solution validation or the possibility of lung aspiration. Capsules are convenient and easy to handle and in most cases it takes only one person to dose an animal.

These drug delivery capsules are clear and available in 8 sizes. They are supplied in a package of 100. Larger sizes are available by special order. Please call for details.

A filling funnel is available separately for each size capsule. They are supplied individually and make filling the capsules simple and fast.
