Submission + - HP micro-needle to be used in medical patches

Stony Stevenson writes: The same programmable micro-needle technology that's embedded into HP office printers could be ever-so-slightly embedded into arms and bellies via a skin patch to inject time-released drugs to patients.

Crospon, a medical device maker based in Ireland, announced on Tuesday that it has signed an intellectual property licensing deal with Hewlett-Packard to develop a transdermal patch that can deliver doses of multiple medicines via technology that's also used in HP's inkjet cartridge printers. A one-inch transdermal patch could contain up to 90,000 micro-needles that can be programmed to "individually fire" medicine into the skin, said Charlie Chapman, an HP director of intellectual property licensing.
