English term or phrase:TAPPERED
The top edge of the capsule must be slightly TAPPERED inside.
Explanation: "La parte superior de la cápsula debe estar ligeramente ahusada hacia el interior" or:
"La parte superior de la cápsula debe ser ligeramente fusiforme hacia el interior"
Capsules for ingestion or other (i.e.: suppositories) must be tappered to avoid accidents (mouth or rectal cuts). Their shape is loosely reminiscent of submarine bows.
