Fabrication of printed drug-delivery systems
Abstract:Printing technologies specifically digital inkjet printing, offer possibilities in the production of individualized medicines. The main advantage of inkjet printing includes the ability to dispense uniform droplets in the picoliter range with high degree of accuracy to allow dose personalization. The pharmaceutical ink formulation has to be designed with respect to its viscosity and surface tension to guarantee continuous printing and high reproducibility of the forming droplets to allow dose uniformity. The aim of this paper is demonstrate the combined use of inkjet and flexographic printing to fabricate pharmaceutical solid dosage forms with controlled release properties of drug substances. Also the characterization of substrates and final drug-delivery systems is studied with various techniques and discussed.

For more than 25 years, NIP has been the leading forum for discussion of advances and new directions in non-impact and digital printing technologies. A comprehensive, industry-wide conference, this meeting includes all aspects of the hardware, materials, software, images, and applications associated with digital printing systems, including drop-on-demand ink jet, wide format ink jet, desktop and continuous ink jet, toner-based electrophotographic printers, production digital printing systems, and thermal printing systems, as well as the engineering capability, optimization, and science involved in these fields.
Since 2005, NIP has been held in conjunction with the Digital Fabrication Conference.
