Project Public Workshop - Fabrication of Functional Medical Microdevices
- Nottingham, UK,
Technologies to produce micron-resolution, nanostructured components in fuctional materials, at production cost which is compatible with disposable components.
The developments will be demonstrated on real disposable components for medical devices: microfluidic analysis films, transdermal microneedles and intravenous ultrasound microprobe
