3D printed personalized medicines are almost here

Pharmaceutical production is closely related to mass production. To sell drugs cheaply, they often have to be made in large quantities. But what happens if you need a drug in a different dose than what is being sold? Or a different ingredient in the mix than in the offer?

Although personalized medicine currently exists, it is strictly small batch material, as compounding (the manual preparation of individualized drug treatments) is difficult, time consuming and has no quality control. But now start up Helsinki Curify Labs automates the process by bringing 3D drug printing to hospitals and veterinary facilities.
