Microneedles for medical applications
Rapid prototyping, direct 3D printing,
series production and use cases
Be part of the upcoming live webinar on how to fabricate highly precise microneedles for medical applications using Two-Photon Polymerization-based (2PP) 3D printing. As minimal invasive devices, microneedles offer great application potential in various fields such as drug delivery, vaccination, blood collection, disease diagnosis, and patient monitoring. Importantly, the microneedle design and materials strongly affect their targeted application and effective translation into clinical trials. In addition, the scalability of microneedle production depends directly on the strategy implemented to microfabricate reproducible and shape-accurate microneedle arrays. We invite you to explore the advantages that high-precision 3D printing offers for microneedle production and get inspired by the application examples presented in this webinar.
Our application manager, Dr. Benjamin Richter, will give an introduction on the capabilities of 2PP-based 3D Microfabrication, with a focus on basic principles of the technology, printing materials and workflow with Quantum X bio. Furthermore, in a live demo he will demonstrate the printing of microneedles with different designs by exploiting the opportunities of design freedom, powerful and intuitive software, and hardware of the printer.
Professor Ryan Donnelly, Chair in Pharmaceutical Technology at the Queen’s University Belfast, will enrich the webinar as a very well recognized expert in the medical application of microneedles. He will present the potential of microneedle arrays for transdermal drug delivery, such as for vaccines, and outline the wide range of novel medical applications including regeneration & pain patches, structures for reduction of scars, biosensors, biocollection concepts and others. Current research results, microfabrication requirements, and opportunities will be presented in the webinar.
