Israeli Innovation: 3D Printed Drug Capsules

Prof. Shlomo Magdassi, director of the 3D and Functional Printing Center at the Hebrew University Yissum, a technology transfer company affiliated with the Hebrew University in Jerusalem, Israel, has developed a new 3D printing technique for producing drug capsules. The process, to be presented at the annual 3D Printing and Beyond conference today at the Hebrew University, utilizes custom 3D printed hydrogels with the capacity for delayed release for controlled drug dosage. The initiative was spearheaded by Shlomo Magdassi, director of the Functional and 3D Printing Center of the Hebrew University, and Dr. Ofra Benny, researcher at the Drug Research Institute of the same university. The innovation consists of manufacturing by 3D printing, with the Digital Light Processing System (DLP), a programmable oral dosage system in the form of sensitive hydrogels that swell, releasing the drug under specific conditions such as pH. Among the advantages of this system are […]
