Blood extraction and insertion is a common process in daily life at hospitals. Hypodermic needles are mostly used for blood transport. These needles are associated with many disadvantages like pain induction due to longer length and no biocompatibility because of material used. In this paper, a novel design and simulation of double lumen polymeric microneedles for blood extraction and insertion have been presented. Using finite element software ANSYS, structural and fluidic analysis have been… CONTINUE READING
