A Microjet System for Intradermal Drug Delivery
Researchers from UC Santa Barbara, UC Berkley and in collaboration with California based StrataGent Life Sciences, developed a novel pulsed microject system engineered for protein drug delivery without any needle pain. Here’s an excerpt from UCSB:
The pulsed mircrojets engineered by the researchers combine high velocity (more than 100 meters per second) with very small jet diameters (between 50 and 100 micrometers), delivering only 2 to 15 nanoliters of liquid drug at a time. The research showed that the pulsed microjet system could be used to effectively deliver drugs for local and systemic applications without using needles.
