Microneedle 

Peter DeMuth
This scanning electron micrograph shows an array of ‘microneedles’ made from a biodegradable polymer. Researchers have shown these materials can be used to deliver vaccines and therapeutics to the outer layers of the skin in a safe and painless way. Each microneedle is approximately 700 microns high and 250 microns wide at the base and can be applied to the skin as a one centimetre-squared patch.
