Easy Personalised Medications
A 6 cm cube 3D printer that makes pills and gummies for neighborhood pharmacists in a third of the time required to fill capsules by hand.
The problem is conventional industrial-size pharmaceutical compounders, which can personalize medicines and dosages for individual patients, are too pricey for most pharmacies.
AutoCompounder will also enable the creation of a poly-pill, combining the needed doses of several medications into one tablet.
Consistent & Quick Pill Production
A new AutoCompounder from Vitae Industries (a small US startup) can make pills and gummies in about 10 minutes.
Load - A pharmacist mixes medicine with a proprietary polymer and fills the AutoCompounder’s single disposable cartridge with the resulting compound.
Print - Then the desired quantity of tablets or gummies is selected, as well as the correct dosage for a patient’s prescription.
The printers will cost about A$6,000 and maintenance.
