English term or phrase:capsule-discharging time?
How to discribe properly the time from when a capsule enters the body orally to when it is excreted from the body. Thank you in advance!!!
Please read the websites David suggests, and you will see, that the period from swallowing the capsule and its' departure is about 24 hours, but there is no special name to it. You could say, the time/period inside the body. The transit time...
Sorry for not responding instantly. Today is our festival for paying respect to our ancesters. the capsule does not contain drugs. Rather it contains a kind of micro-instruments for imaging the internal part of the small intestine.

capsule dosing time
Explanation: The answer to your question is about to be impossible to be given.
However, modern capsules do present a discharging time characteristic or dosing the body. Materials, such as glass or plastics, that have a precise solubility time allow to control how much and when the drug is supplied to the body.
