Vivek P. Chavda, Tushar Berad, Mitesh Panara, Jignesh Bhadani, Sandip Patel



Particle engineering is quiet essential nowadays in order to get desired qualities for generating stable formulation with improved therapeutic credentials. The current pharmaceutical technology has already realized the tremendous potential of controlled release multiparticulate system in terms of its flexibility in product development and therapeutic benefits to the patients in comparison to the conventional single unit dosage form. Pastillation provides an efficient, cost-effective process for the continuous converting of molten products into uniform, round and dust free granules ideal for bagging, transporting and bulk material handling systems. This manuscript is grafted to provide some highlights regarding pastillation.
