We’ve covered this before, but here’s another site covering the drugs-on-demand story of 3D Printing.
|New ‘Reactionware’ 3D Printing System Spits Out Pharmaceuticals On-Demand|
Philip Kitson and colleagues at the University of Glasgow have developed a new framework for 3D printing drug manufacturing devices on-site on an as-needed basis. All it requires is a $2,000 3D printer and a drug specification (the manufacturing processes required to produce it). Given such a specification, software created by Kitson’s group dictates to the printer exactly what sort of manufacturing hardware it needs to print that is then capable of producing a particular drug. So, it’s machines (microreactors, actually) for making specific drugs that are printed, not the drugs themselves.
