By Steve Risser, Senior Research Leader


Intricate oral medication schedules present difficulties for treatment compliance, and the lack of customizable formulations can lead to reduced therapeutic efficacy.

An innovative 3D printing technology developed by Battelle Medical Device Solutions and a precision drug delivery company has the potential to transform the way traditional medicines are formulated, manufactured, distributed, and administered. This groundbreaking technology allows for the production of customized drugs and personalized medicine, offering a wider range of options for both patients and healthcare providers.

With this 3D printing technology, non-standard dosages, combination therapies, and easily customizable medications can be created, catering to the unique needs of individual patients. This eliminates the need for separate packaging lines and reduces packaging waste, making the process more efficient and environmentally friendly. Moreover, the technology is designed to comply with pharmaceutical manufacturing regulations, ensuring the safety and quality of the medications produced.

One of the key advantages of this technology is its ability to create custom tablets in a matter of minutes. As the costs for the technology decrease, it will become increasingly feasible to produce individual batches with customized dosages or combinations for specific patients. This advancement in drug delivery has the potential to greatly improve patient outcomes and overall well-being.

By enabling the creation of personalized medications and offering a wider range of product options, this technology has the potential to significantly enhance patient care and improve the overall healthcare experience.
