Caption: Close-up of ElectroNeedle Biomedical Sensor Array, a tiny device developed by researchers at the United States National Nuclear Security Administration's Sandia National Laboratories. When pressed against the skin, arrays of micron-sized needles penetrate the skin painlessly. Arranged in varying numbers on a small patch, the needles can measure molecules inside the body, allowing rapid, multiplexed diagnostic measurements. This device could eliminate the need for blood drawing by diabetes patients to test glucose levels or by medical personnel to determine if someone is having a heart attack.
