Researchers develop new laser-sensitive delivery system

This week, researchers at the University of Illinois announced the development of a new system to improve the delivery of intravenous drugs. By using a laser-sensitive device, this new computerized system will help determine the dosage, as well as the type of medication. These new 'nano-domes' are both inexpensive and extremely accurate, which will help decrease the amount of errors that occur when administering IVs.

The team, led by Micro and Nanotechnology Laboratory interim director Brian Cunningham, designed the system to be able to identify drugs at concentrations 100 times lower than current systems and to identify multiple drugs at a time. They hope to be able to identify combinations of up to 10 drugs delivered at once, and are looking to commercialize the system. 

How will this new system help decrease human error and save time? Want to learn more about the latest in drug delivery? The 18th Annual Drug Delivery Partnerships will help you form a drug delivery strategy that keeps you ahead of the market, register today!
