The more compatible mode of dispensing lipid based drug delivery system (LBDDS) had consorted to capsule filling since few decades back. For this hard or soft capsules shell often suffice for early development process. However, on account of some physical challenges to the capsule shell, are less preferred. On the other hand tablets in particular are more convenient mode of drug delivery for patients. The techniques covered hereunder alleviate the metamorphous of liquid or semi-solid formulations into solid particles such as dry powders, granules or pellets in order to fill into capsules, sachets or compressed into single or multilayered tablets.
