3D Printing Microneedle Drug Delivery


Microneedle technology has the potential to address the growing trend toward minimally invasive medicine by allowing the precise delivery of therapeutic agents to prescribed locations below the skin.



Advances in materials processing – technologies that include 3D printing and additive manufacturing – are creating new devices and new opportunities for microneedle drug delivery. The processing techniques incorporate one or more technologies capable of forming of from one to an array or grid of microneedles.
