Application of 3D printing technology in dosage form design & drug delivery – Presented by Senping Cheng, Triastek

Application of 3D printing technology in dosage form design and drug delivery – Presented by Senping Cheng, Triastek at the 3D Medical Conference 5th edition, which will take place on 30-31 January 2018 at MECC Maastricht, The Netherlands.

Triastek has developed the fused deposition modeling (FDM) 3D printer with multiple printer heads for creating the complex pharmaceutcial dosage forms. The unique architecture of tablet is created with one or more compartment(s) or chamber(s) within a tablet. These compartments can hold drug(s) in a specailly designed formulation to modulate the release of active ingredient(s) at a predetermined time and rate in a given mode. Onset time, mode of drug release, and release rate could affect the efficacy and outcome of drug therapy. Therefore, rational use of these characteristics of drug release can achieve desired or synergistic pharmacological effect in clinical application of one or more drug(s). Mixing and/or matching these characteristics of drug release to meet the clinical needs for various therapeutic regimens can be achieved by creating one single tablet using 3D printing technology.
