Australia reviews regulation of personalized and 3D printed medical devices

Australia’s Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) has collated the public’s responses to proposed regulatory changes for personalized and 3D printed medical devices. Overall, the consensus has been that the proposal needs “more clarity,” and the body, therefore, is putting a halt to regulatory development for 3D printed perosnalized medical devices in favor of seeking “Further stakeholder […]

China FDA calls for professional guidance on 3D printed medical devices

As the self-made manufacturing capitol of the world, China is a country to look to for 3D printing’s ascension into the supply chain. Though a recent report stated “It is still too early to conclude that the mass production era has been replaced by the mass customisation era,” the State has made formal efforts to increase […]

3D printed microneedles present pain-free alternative to syringes

With an FFF 3D printer researchers at the University of Texas at Dallas (UT Dallas) now have a new low-cost method of making microneedle arrays – a small syringe-alternative patch for administering drugs. The method combines a commercially available desktop 3D printer with a chemical etching technique. It enables the creation of ultra-fine microscopic pins in a […]
