3D printed pharmaceuticals

Bioprinting pharmaceuticals achieves what traditional drug manufacturing cannot -  the low-cost production of customized pill medications for patients who need special dosing, quantities or composition of drugs. Pills can be 3D printed in unique sizes, shapes and with slow-release capabilities. 3D printing also allows for the inexpensive creation of the “polypill,” i a single pill  containing multiple drugs that a patient is prescribed,

As companies race to develop a vaccine and treatments against Covid19, 3D printing could help solve the issue of how to get drugs to patients that need them - generating production at the local level.
