Individualized Medication: 2D & 3D Drug Printing In Pharma (3D Printing Europe 2018)

Dr Markus Dachtler, Founder
DiHeSys-Digital Health Systems

Presentation Summary

Digitalization in Pharma is behind other industry sectors. Individualized Medication by transforming digital health data to e.g. individualized printed formulations down to a batch size of one will start a new era in pharma industry. Further advantages of printed dosage forms are e.g. combination of drugs and excipients which are not compatible with traditional manufacturing techniques enabling the production of polypills with tailor-made release characteristics. Drug printing can be also used for cost-effective dose-finding studies. The presentation gives an overview of 2D & 3D drug printing technologies and recent examples of drug printing in pharmaceutical manufacturing.
