Dutch scientists create needleless injections

Researchers in the Netherlands have announced that they are close to developing injections without needles.

The scientists have developed what they call a “Bubble Gun”. It uses a laser to push tiny droplets through the outer layer of the skin.

This results in “virtually painless” injections.

The new technology has been developed by Twente University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

The process is quicker than a mosquito bite and doesn’t cause any pain because the nerve endings in the skin are not touched.

The new technology will hopefully help those suffering from trypanophobia – or fear of needles. It’s more common than you might think. Roughly one in five people suffer from this condition.

The Bubble Gun could take one to three years to become available to the general public, depending on the progress of research and regulatory issues.
