Our bioMEMS research has refocused on using plastics, 3-D printing and hot-embossing. We can imbed microelectrodes in plastic devices, early applications include cell cytometry, lysis, and electroporation. CMOS chips and graphene–based sensors can also be incorporated into the plastic microfluidic devices and connected to the electronic interconnects, thus making biomedical sensors with increased functionality possible. A NEEDLE-FREE 3-D printing, microjet-based drug delivery system for oral delivery of protein drugs. The “pill” uses a solid-to-gas phase change to generate high internal pressure to create a liquid jet that can penetrate mucosal layers inside the cheek or in the intestine.
