The Speed of Technology

Aprecia said the FDA’s approval marks the first time such a 3-D printed drug has been approved using the ZipDose technology. 

Aprecia said it will use 3DP as a catalyst to develop medicines that rapidly disintegrate with a sip of liquid, even at high dose loads. The ZipDose technology enables the delivery of up to 1,000 milligrams, in a single dose. 

In addition to the ZipDose platform, Aprecia’s other products include CustomRelease, which provides time-release options for drug delivery; NanoDose, designed for products requiring submilligram doses and ImplantaDose, which is used for management of infections and pain following surgery.
