Fluid Flow

The super small size of nanotubes allows them to pierce the skin painlessly (always a plus), especially for people who have to check their blood several times a day, such as Type II diabetes patients.

TheraFuse, Inc., is an emerging technology company that designs and develops infusion systems for delivering pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical liquids. Since 2001, TheraFuse has created products that measure various fluid flow rates during therapeutic drug infusion (e.g., very low insulin infusion rates for newborns to very high infusion rates needed for clinical intravenous drug delivery). Currently, the Vista, California, company is creating a skin patch for diabetic use. By using nanostraws to draw blood and check glucose levels and then inject insulin when needed, the diabetic patch will make the mechanics of the disease a lot easier, especially for children.
