IP Intellectual Property
U-Needle has filed international patents on its silicon micro-needle, a silicon micro needle array and the production of its needles.
Newly generated intellectual property (IP) is kept from the public domain, to be able to protect it by patent applications, by manufacturing or trade secret. A patent guarantees a competitive advantage to the developed product, and this is our ultimate aim.
More patent applications are currently in preparation.
U-Needle patent applications are co-ordinated, written & filed by EP&C in Rijswijk.
