Libertatis Ergo Holding B.V. and Stichting Apothekers in Loondienst invest €500k in Leiden based startup Doser.
Customised or personalised medication is currently expensive and not widely available. Doser has developed 3D printing technology with cartridges that can manufacture medicines available through pharmacies, to enable easy, affordable and safe personalised medication with many applications; lower dosage, easier to swallow or better tasting medication for children, or personalised medication to avoid side effects for individuals. Doser wants this technology to become a standard of care, affordable, and available to all.
Libertatis Ergo Holding (LEH) and Stichting Apothekers in Loondienst (SAL) are strategic partners, with a strong network of pharmacies, doctors, caregivers and investors. Their investment, together with the previous investments from a.o. Zuid Holland, Rabobank, NFKC & NWO, will be used to build more printers, and deploy them in various Dutch pharmacies to deliver the first 3D printed tablets to patients in 2022.
