|Title:||Microneedles and micropump for drug delivery applications||Authors:||Teo, Melissa Ai Ling||Keywords:||DRNTU::Engineering::Bioengineering||Issue Date:||2003||Abstract:||In this project, arrays of hollow/solid microneedles were microfabricated out of silicon. In vitro experiments using isolated rat's skin demonstrated that these arrays enhance drug permeability by 10-20 times with the amount of enhancement depending on the microneedle diameter. Valveless diffuser micropumps were also fabricated for drug delivery applications.||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/10356/6514||Rights:||Nanyang Technological University||Fulltext Permission:||restricted||Fulltext Availability:||With Fulltext|
