Our Tablet Manufacturing Process

1. Initial consultation

A detailed consultation is scheduled during which the requirements, goals, and desired outcomes for your liquid formulations are discussed.

2. Ingredient selection & formulation

Raw materials and active ingredients that align with your desired capsule characteristics are selected—making sure to consider their pharmaceutical properties, and things like fillers, binders, and other factors. Somafina’s formulation experts develop a prototype or sample of the custom tablet—meeting your requirements for dosage, release profile, stability, and other critical attributes.

3. Sample testing

The sample capsule formulation is tested for disintegration time, dissolution rate, and overall product performance and adjustments are made as needed.

4. Quality control & testing

Quality control tests are conducted on raw materials to ensure that they meet specifications and in-process testing is performed to regularly monitor product quality during manufacturing.

5. Raw material sourcing

We source the highest-quality raw materials from reputable suppliers—verifying the ingredients’ purity through testing and certifications.

6. Tablet production

The raw materials are blended according to the approved formulation, then encapsulated using specialized equipment. Coating, an optional step, makes the capsules easier to swallow and can mask taste.

7. Full-run quality checks

Quality control measures are implemented at various stages of capsule production to ensure consistency and formulation adherence—including in-process testing, sampling, and visual inspections.

8. Packaging & labeling

During liquid production, work can begin on the packaging design. Labels, graphics, and other branding elements are created and printing specifications are determined. The approved packaging is filled with the finished product then labels are applied. All necessary product information is included to meet regulatory requirements.

9. Final quality assurance

The final round of quality assurance checks is conducted; this ensures that the finished capsules meet all specifications and is defect-free.

10. Delivery & post-production

The finished product is prepared for distribution; it is securely packed and shipped as needed. Ongoing support in areas like inventory management, reorderings, and post-production is available upon request.
