Multiple medications with different release times—all in one pill. Last year, the FDA approved a 3D-printed pill for the first time. And now, researchers from the National University of Singapore (NUS) have developed a method to make 3D printing medicine even better. NUS Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering Assistant Professor Soh Siow Ling, with the help of PhD student Sun Yajuan, created a cheap, simple way to prompt a 3D printer to create multiple medications with different release formulas—all in one pill. “For a long time, personalised medicine has been a mere concept as it was far too complex or expensive to be realised,” said Soh. “This new tablet fabrication method is a game changer—it is technically simple, relatively inexpensive and versatile. The desired medications per patient can be mapped out by a doctor or pharmacist through the design software. “The system is easy to use and does not involve […]
