MCS paper in Biomicrofluidics
For the last two centuries needles have been used as the main drug delivery system, causing several problems such as spread of diseases, injuries in health care workers and waste contamination, among others. In this work, we studied the liquid microjet production on a CW laser-based microfluidic system in order to develop a needle-free portable, affordable and perhaps reusable injector in the future.
