The R&D program underway encompasses:

  • New needle structures including
    • Tipping or sharpening
    • Bio-diffusible structures
    • Layering of multiple actives
  • New polymer and substrate types
  • End use delivery mechanisms
  • Diagnostic capabilities
  • Electrically conductive materials and coatings
  • Layering of microneedle structures to include API's
  • Additional delivery modalities
    • Coated needles
    • Gel Excipients
    • Drug reservoirs
  • A strong portfolio of academic and professional consults is in place to evaluate applications.
