Gelatin Capsules

Select from both very large down to very small gelatin capsules!



Gelatin Capsules
gelatin capsules Empty gelatin capsules have many uses around a microscopy laboratory and are often times perceived as a lower cost alternative to BEEM® capsules. These small empty gelatin capsules are a handy and economical alternative to BEEM capsules. Use these pharmaceutical grade, hard capsules as an embedding mold when very small volumes are being used and/or when light transmission is needed. When ready for removal, the embedment can be separated from the gelatin capsule by dissolution.

These empty gelatin capsules can be used as a low volume embedding mold for embedding resins, something especially valuable for those embedding resins that are on the expensive side of the norm. And of course they are transparent to both visible and UV light, so that they can be used with resins such as SPI-Chem™ Low Acid GMA, Lowicryl™, LR White™, and Unicryl™.

Storage and shipment of fragile parts:
The SPI Supplies Brand of empty gelatin capsules are widely used for the shipment and storage of fragile items, and represent a lower cost alternative to the well-known membrane boxes.

Encapsulation of drugs and plant nutrients:

These are the same capsules widely used throughout the pharmaceutical industry and are considered "pharmaceutical grade". However, SPI Supplies is not registered with the US Food and Drug Administration and therefore can not sell these gelatin capsules for applications involving pharmaceutical or clinical usage. These capsules are not for human consumption.

The gelatin capsules featured by SPI are known for their rapid dissolution properties, 90 seconds in water at 37° C/98.6° F. For further information read more about the SPI Supplies Brand of Gelatin capsules here.

All sizes of what we call "small" capsules are packaged in bags of 1000.
