3D printing

3D printing is currently one of the hot topics in engineering and is also used by the NASA in space.  In terms of drug delivery, 3D printing offers several possibilities that we try to explore.

 

We are using 3D printing for various applications:

  • development of new dosage forms for oral and non-oral routes of administrations

  • rapid prototyping
    (e.g.  in biorelevant dissolution tests
    )
