Microneedle drug monitoring system for painless drug deliver
A microneedle drug monitoring system has been developed by a team of researchers from the University of British Columbia (UBC) and the Paul Scherrer Institut (PSI) in Switzerland. This new system is capable of enhancing patient comfort and could potentially replace expensive, invasive blood draws.
During medical treatment, the newly developed system that has a thin, small patch is pressed against a patient’s arm in order to measure drugs in the patient’s bloodstream in a painless manner without extracting blood. The very small needle-like projection, measuring less than half a milimetre long, appears to be very similar to a hollow cone and does not penetrate the patient’s skin just like a conventional hypodermic needle.
