obat-dari-printer-3dThere’s no question that 3D printing is going to change the world. From manufacturing to design, medicine to electronics, the technology has made significant leaps in terms of production—making what was once expensive and inaccessible, now cost efficient and available to many.

This almost makes Aprecia Pharmaceuticals’ announcement unsurprising. According to Science News Journal, Aprecia has become the first pharmaceutical brand in the world to use 3D printing technology to produce a drug called Spritam—a drug meant to treat epilepsy.

Not only was the drug successfully printed, it also managed to receive the necessary US FDA approval—and it’s now currently available in the United States.
