Scientists at the University of Washington say their approach would be more precise and less painful than the traditional skin test that uses a hypodermic needle.
Researchers develop a microneedle array that could analyze your body chemistry in real time.
Researchers at Purdue University develop a pump that, activated by body temperature alone, could push large-molecule drugs through painless microneedles.
Researchers at the Georgia Institute of Technology have designed a painless patch of "microneedles" that could replace hypodermic needles and even annual flu shots.
Scientists develop an influenza vaccine delivered by a microneedle patch that patients could easily and painlessly self-administer.
Prototype microneedle patch under study by the CDC is well received by early testers. Imagine picking up a flu vaccine at the pharmacy and administering it in the comfort of your home.
A patch comprising hundreds of microscopic needles could allow laypeople to self-administer vaccines and then simply watch the patch dissolve, according to researchers at Georgia Tech.
