You will be able to 3D print customised medicines on demand „within a decade“

While 3-D printers have been used by hobbyists and SMEs for several years, various individuals and organisations have recently been experimenting with medical uses such as prosthetics or dental implants. But researchers from the University of Central Lancashire (UCLan) in Preston in the UK are working on a revolutionary new way to deliver customized medicines on demand using 3D printing.

3D Printing Theophylline tablet

This is a demonstration for fabricating theophylline tablet (commonly used in the management of asthma) using Fused Deposition Modelling 3D printer (Makerbot Replicator 2X).
Dr Mohamed Albed Alhnan from the School of Pharmacy and Biomedical Sciences alongside his team developed a drug-polymer filament system that can replace the original filaments in a 3-D printer. The team found that the new pharmaceutical “ink” allowed the team to print a challenging tablet design with significant improvement of appearance and high accuracy of tablet weight and dose.
