End-user Applications

It’s exciting to think about how end-users are going to actually use microneedles in the near future, so as to substantiate the impressive research achievements that have already been done. This all depends on the kind of micronneedles being used and the kind of drug being applied.

We believe you can’t design a final end-user applicator until you assess the exact microneedle design and the most important application parameters. At the same time, it’s complicated to optimize those parameters and a microneedle embodiment without access to a dedicated applicator. Our expertize, research tools, and intense drive to collaborate with other innovators enable us to overcome this challenge.

uPRAX has always been, and still is, interested in being involved with new (research) project proposals. This allows us to continuously grow a knowledge database with specifications for end-user products. We aim to make shared use of that knowledge as much as possible and to assemble a few core end-user products that can then be customized for whatever a certain user, vaccine or environment requires.

We believe that one day, application of microneedles will be the most ordinary thing in the world – and a very easy practice – potentially even seeing end-users administering themselves. Our current products under development entail disposables and a cartridge approach for coated and dissolvable microneedle arrays, a 2-step process where microneedles penetrate the skin and the pores are then covered with a medicine patch, as well as other methods such as hollow microneedle mediated drug delivery. For more information (likely bound to NDA) please contact us directly.

Custom Solutions

At uPRAX we like to work with other microneedle enthusiasts. Our team employs a design consultancy approach to meet individual needs and we pride ourselves in providing a professional and reliable service. We’re yet to come across a problem we can’t solve.

 In the past few years, we have been able to help answer various design & engineering questions. Let’s not reinvent the wheel. Maybe we’ve already dealt with or considered similar challenges that you might be facing. So please – don’t hesitate to get in touch.

Research Applicators

At uPRAX, we feel our in-house tools should be made available to others working in the field of microneedles whenever possible. Using precise electronic control of impact and pressing force parameters, our dedicated research applicators provide an opportunity to increase efficiency and improve consistency when it comes to applying microneedles to the skin.
