How can I give myself an injection easily?
Transdermal drug delivery technology
The possibility to inject drugs via the skin yourself, has numerous advantages. You no longer need a doctor to get an injection. But more important: it is much more convenient for the patient, because it’s far less painful than a standard injection.
By applying high precision technology developed for the production of optical lenses, we can create sheets with micro needle arrays. Shape and length (100-2000 µm) of the needles can vary. These micro needles are made of polysaccharides. Within several minutes after piercing, the needles will dissolve underneath the skin. The medicine that is present in the needle tips will be thereby delivered to the body. Due to the extreme fineness of the needles and shallow injection depths, drug delivery will be painless and very convenient for the patients.
