“Think of a device which is around postage stamp size and has thousands upon thousands of tiny spikes on its surface: this is a nanopatch. the nanopatch is well suited to the delivery of vaccines where targeting immune cells is vital for vaccination success. Examples include influenza, polio and cholera. The nanopatch is revolutionising how vaccines are delivered. This technology has the potential to dramatically reduce the cost of vaccination programs and make vaccines more accessible worldwide.”
