Microfluidic Nozzle Innovation

Precision MicroFabâ„¢ was contacted by Dr. Allen Maizes, M.D. to design and micro-manufacturing a microfluidic nozzle with increase turbulence for better ultrasound visualization of a needle tip location.

In collaboration with Dr. Maizes, we fabricated several different prototype models. We experimented until we found the best design for this application. With a much clearer view of needle tip location, the physician can provide safer and more effective anesthesia delivery.
