Thesis

Intra-dermal vaccination using Lorentz Motor Needle-Free Jet Injectors for New-borns and Infants

Vaccine delivery to the dermis layer is currently expanding with more research proving improved immune responses with intradermal injections against Intramuscular or Subcutaneous. The main aspect of this research lays in adjusting the existing Lorentz Motor Needle-Free Injector and controlling it so the depth of penetration does not exceed the target skin layer.
