  2. 2. OVER VIEW INTRODUCTION SPECIAL FEATURES GENERAL PROPERTIES FORMULATION METHOD OF PREPARATION EVALUATION TESTS ADVANTAGES & DISADVANTAGES CONCLUSION
  3. 3. INTRODUCTION These are the drug delivery systems which fastly disintegrate in mouth with H2O. It was first developed in 1970’s alternative to tablets & capsules. It consists of very thin oral strip which is placed on tongue & upon hydration it fastly releases drug into oral cavity.
  4. 4.  Thin elegant film Available in various sizes & shapes Unobstrusive Excellent mucoadhesion Rapid release
  5. 5. GENERAL PROPERTIES Thickness ranges from 1-10mm & it’s surface area is 1-20 cm². Its low dry tack allows for ease of handling & application. Its rapid hydration rate facilitates fast softening & absorption. 2mm thickness of film will take 5-10sec to start its disintegration.
