DLP 3D Printed Microneedles For Improved Performance In Clinical Uses

When it comes to Needles, everyone fears the prick. A Team of Researchers in China set out on path to 3D Print Hydrogel Microneedles that can be used for various clinical purposes involving drug loading, reducing pain and greatly increasing the drug loading capacity. They created creating high-performance yet affordable hydrogel Microneedles through high-precision digital light processing (H-P DLP). Upon completing the study, the authors noted 300ms as the ‘ideal exposure time’ for building Microneedles.
