3D Printing Medecines becomes a reality

Currently, for certain medications, the pharmaceutical industry does not provide a solution for patients. Pharmacists, therefore, produce medications to fill in this gap. These preparations are typically done manually. 3D printing of medicines provides concrete solutions to various problems:

> Flexibility in customizing medications. This technology offers personalized combinations of molecules with individually adjusted dosages, manufactured for each patient to meet specific needs.
> Improvement in the shape design of pills (adaptation to children: size and acceptance for example). In addition to molecules, additive manufacturing opens up the possibility of modifying the taste profile: revising the aromas of drugs for a more pleasant intake.

> On-demand manufacturing facilitated by the installation of 3D printers in hospital dispensaries and pharmacies leads to a reduction in supply delays and, consequently, an increase in production speed. By decentralizing pharmaceutical production, this solution also provides access to medications in underserved or remote areas.
> Addresses the challenges of polypharmacy by combining multiple medications into a single oral form. Taking several tablets daily can be cumbersome, prone to errors, and may impact the effectiveness of a treatment.
> Possibility to produce small batches for testing purposes in quantities that are not cost-effective for factories or traditional manufacturing processes.
> Automates magistral and hospital preparations.
> Addresses the growing issue of drug shortages.
> On-demand production of medications also significantly reduces waste production (packaging) and intensive wastage.

3D printing of medicines proves to be a precise, reproducible and cost-effective technique to overcome several identified challenges and improve the current supply.

Lynxter participe à cette innovation en apportant son expertise technologique

The MED-U Modular printer, co-developed by Lynxter and MB Therapeutics, is designed for 3D printing of medications. Several years of research and development have led to the creation of the MED-U Modular machine, specifically designed for the pharmaceutical industry. Lynxter’s expertise in additive manufacturing of industrial machines is complemented by the know-how of MB Therapeutics, specializing in the production of custom medications.

As its name suggests, the modularity of the MED-U Modular printer allows for the printing of various rheologies, whether in the form of gel or paste, compatible with thermosensitive active ingredients.

This solution provides industrial security while ensuring precision and ease of use.

Lynxter also contributes its expertise to the security of the printing process through the development of secure software that enables traceability of actions.
