Fabrication of Microneedles intended for Biomedical Extraction Applications

Reference number
Coordinator ASCILION AB
Funding from Vinnova SEK 390 000
Project duration November 2014 - August 2015
Status Completed
Venture The strategic innovation programme Electronic Components and Systems:

Purpose and goal

Ascilion, Silex Microsystems and Acreo Swedish ICT have jointly worked together with the transfer of a microneedle design from lab to fab. A first prototype run have successfully been manufactured in Silex´ 8-inch MEMS fab.

Results and expected effects

Ascilion, Silex Microsystems and Acreo Swedish ICT have strengthened the ties between SMEs and research institutes by technology transfer and cooperation with process development. The performed work proves manufacturability on an industrial scale of microneedles that can be used within diagnostic tools.

Approach and implementation

The project was carried out using a classic project management structure and PM tools with Ascilion acting as task owner. The work involved the ordinary startup meeting and specification work. A detailed specification was agreed upon and formed the basis for a re-design of the previous R&D version of the needles and adaptation of the process list to steps appropriate for 8´ structures rather than the previous 4´ structure
