GE Healthcare opens first 3D Printing lab

GE Healthcare has opened its first 3D printing lab, called the Innovative Design and Advanced Manufacturing Technology Center for Europe, in Uppsala, Sweden. The center will use technologies including 3D printing and robotics to speed up the launch of new innovative products for the healthcare industry.

The center combines advanced manufacturing technology such as metal and polymer printers and collaborative robots, or “cobots”, with traditional machining equipment. A key in realizing the advantages of 3D printing is ensuring the technology is considered at the start of the innovation process with Research and Design teams working with advanced manufacturing engineers and in collaboration with customers. The new center in Uppsala will ensure additive expertise is available from the start of product design. Teams will design, test and produce 3D-printed parts for GE Healthcare products and prepare for final transfer to manufacturing. Continue reading “GE Healthcare opens first 3D Printing lab”

Future of 3D medicine printing: One pill shall rule them all

Future of 3D medicine printing: One pill shall rule them all

A team of researchers from the National University of Singapore (NUS) have found a way to make personalised medicine cheaper and easier. Imagine if you could combine the myriad of pills you need to take for your ailment in just one tablet; or if you need only to take the medication once a day and the drug will be slowly released throughout the day at different rates to treat your illness; or if doctors could easily make tablets on the spot that are tailored to each patient’s needs.

All these could become a reality with a new method of tablet fabrication designed by Assistant Professor Soh Siow Ling and PhD student Ms. Sun Yajuan from the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at the NUS Faculty of Engineering. The novel system can make customisable pills that release drugs with any desired release profiles. Continue reading “Future of 3D medicine printing: One pill shall rule them all”

“The regulatory perspective: benefits and limits of 3D printed drugs” – Presented by Dr. William Shang, Johnson & Johnson

Dr. William Shang

“The regulatory perspective: benefits and limits of 3D printed drugs” – Presented by Dr. William Shang, Johnson & Johnson. 3DP technology is already up and running in many areas. The future definitely looks promising when considering the idea of 3DPs, but are the regulatory agencies ready for such technology? The presentation will reflect the regulators views and concerns about pharmaceutical development, manufacturing and control of this new technology. Potential clinical and preclinical obstacles in terms of practical use will be addressed as well.

Tobias D. Gantner, MD, MBA, LL. M., HealthCare Futurists GmbH, will Speak at the 3D Medicines Printing Conference on “Imprintables: A new class of products empowering patients, physicians and consumers alike.”

With the IoT, subjects that belong together finally come closer together. The medically interested public and a growing number of patients have gotten used to wearables and ubiquitous computing. Physicians, sick funds and governmental bodies are slowly adapting data usage generated from microelectronics.

The medical innovation reformation also brings the maker-scene to prostheses engineering, employing 3D printing technology. 3D printing of medicines has shown first successes and yet is still a far cry from putting pharmacy’s business models in jeopardy.
