 SLS 3D Printing Technology becomes the choice for Customized Pills by FabRx

FabRx, creator of Printlets and 3D printed tablets with customized dosages of medication, has just turned to Selective laser sintering (SLS) 3D printing for their customized medication plans. Mixing acetaminophen with two pharmaceutical-grade polymers, one with immediate release and one with modified release characteristics, the powders were 3D printed into tablet form using a Sintratec 3D printer. The newer medications so printed using SLS technology were high resolution and had no drug degradation.
