No More Needle Injections with Micro-Poration

Micro-poration is a painless method of transferring medication through the skin. The latest invention called micro-poration is a painless method of transferring medication (intraepidermal) into the body using laser technology. It is an alternative to injecting a needle. A handheld laser creates micro pores in the epidermis of the skin for the transfer of molecules. This device delivers medication and vaccinations directly through the skin. As an alternative to injecting a needle, mic...

Ultra-Flexible Devices to Monitor the Brain

Brain activity can be monitored with tiny flexible electronics which could roll up to fit in a pocket. Charles Lieber, a nanoscientist and nanotechnologist at Harvard University, has designed latest ultra-thin electronics flexible enough to get stuffed into the needle of a syringe with a diameter as small as the average width of a human hair. Currently available flexible electronics are usually flat sheets, designed to lie on surfaces. They help to monitor and manipulate living tissue but ...
