Bio molecular Needling System and healthcare (recorded talk)

We investigate a novel fabrication method to achieve the user-friendliest, low-cost, and safest way for dissoluble microneedle patches with vaccine delivery, several medical treatments, and even glucose sensing. The sensor device painlessly monitors fluid in the skin within minutes. Anyone can use the disposable patch without training, making it highly practical. Additionally, fabrication is easy, low cost, and the glucose sensor can be swapped for other paper-based sensors that monitor other important biomarkers.
