Nearly Painless Microneedle Patch Tests for Antibodies and More

Nearly Painless Microneedle Patch Tests for Antibodies and More

Engineers have developed a microneedle patch that can be applied to the skin, capture a biomarker of interest and, thanks to its unprecedented sensitivity, allow clinicians to detect its presence. The technology is low cost, easy for clinicians or patients themselves to use, and could eliminate the need for a trip to the hospital just for a blood draw.
