in Pharmaceutics Encapsulation in Pharmaceutics is the process of enclosing active ingredients in a capsule or other sub-micron form to provide controlled release of the ingredient with advantages such as improved bioavailability, flexible dosing, sustained release, and reduced toxicity. This method is widely used in the pharmaceutical industry to improve the effect of drugs. Encapsulation can be used to protect active ingredients from external environments, which can range from pH levels to heat and pressure. Furthermore, encapsulation is an important tool for driving targeted drug delivery, which can help to reduce drug waste resulting in an improved cost-effectiveness.
