Thesis

Needle-free blood extraction for insulin therapy using a controllable jet injector

My PhD reseach foces on developing a needle-free blood extraction technique for insulin therapy, based upon the use of a controllable jet injector. The device will use a high-speed pressurized fluid jet to penetrate the dermal skin and disrupt the capillary bed, and then withraw a mixture of bloood and injected fluid for a glucose assay.
