Microchips Biotech is Automating Drug Dosing

 

Microchips Biotech has been developing a product for drug deliver on a chip. A microchip is implanted in the body with as many as 400 doses of a self-contained hermetically-sealed drug. The drug is then released manually via wireless remote by patient, clinician or can be automated based on time or sensing a change in metabolic behavior.

 

Each implant contains 100’s of micro-reservoirs, small hermetically sealed compartments, each of which store up to 1 mg of drug.  The microchip-based implant is activated by a wireless signal which triggers the micro-reservoirs to release the drug.

 

Bill Gates’s contraceptive project is looking to use this technology to implant women in the buttocks, upper arm or abdomen.

 


Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
