3D printed implantable micro device administers drugs with high specificity

Written by 3DMedNet

Researchers from Columbia University (NY, USA) have developed a 3D printed microfluidic device capable of administering drugs to patients with high efficacy and low toxicity. Researchers from Columbia University (NY, USA) have developed a 3D printed microfluidic device that can be implanted into the body to release medication in a controlled manner. Most implantable micro devices are fixed with little biocompatibility and therefore are limited in their utility. A research team led by Samuel Sia (Columbia University; NY, USA) have created a device with unique mechanical properties that could avoid these limitations. They hope that this platform, called the implantable...
