Using data from a routine stability program, a study was undertaken to determine the extent of empty hard capsule variation. The primary objective was to understand the variability within specifications, identify factors that may influence variation, and evaluate whether or not specific material characteristics or attributes are critical to capsule performance. The study also aimed to support risk assessment and QbD product development.
