3D-printing enables the production of tablets for individual patients at the point-of-care, such as a hospital pharmacy. The quality of these tablets needs to be guaranteed, but conventional, destructive quality control is not feasible due to the small batch sizes. Non-destructive analytical methods, such as near-infrared and Raman spectroscopy, are necessary to predict the drug content in personalized tablets. This presentation will focus on the suitability of these analytical methods for use in clinical practice, specifically for drug content prediction of lipid semi-solid extrusion 3D-printed personalized tablets.
