Tablets & Capsules Solid Dosage SourceBook June 2015 47 GELITA Corporate Description/ Market Leadership GELITA ® Gelatine is the foundation of the world's leading gelatin hard- and soft-capsules – the most popular dosage forms for prescription and over-the- counter drugs and dietary supplements, vitamins and minerals. GELITA, headquartered in Eberbach, Germany, is the market leader in gelatine with global production and technical expertise since 1875. New Products GELITA Innovations in Gelatine Capsule Technology GELITA's Pharmaceutical Competence Team has developed a new technology: GELITA ® RXL (Reduced Cross-Linking) Gelatine. This gelatine significantly reduces the amount of cross-linking to enhance capsule dissolution properties and improve capsule shelf-life, even at high temperatures and humidity. Best of all, the ingenuity of patented GELITA ® RXL (US patent 7,485,323) is accomplished without any non-gelatine additives and complies with all existing regulations. GELITA ® RXL is gelatine and it can meet all normal product specifications for gelatine in capsule applications. This optimized gelatine supports Quality by Design initiative for new drug developments, speeding product development by reducing the possibility that a capsule formulation, once developed, will later fail storage requirements. GELITA ® RXL can also reduce the level of Tier 2 testing required. Novel Delivery Aside from expertise in gelatine for capsules, GELITA also offers unique, customized gelatines for gummy delivery systems - whether for vitamin, mineral or dietary supplement formulations. Consider partnering with GELITA to participate in the rapidly expanding fortified gummy market! GELITA 2445 Port Neal Industrial Rd.
