A Breakthrough in MicroNeedle Technology
Proprietary SĀSO™ (Self-Assembled Sealed-Origami) technology is the first and only practical microneedle technology for IV use, revolutionary in its transformational potential. SĀSO™ processes produce microneedle arrays in one simple mask step (compared to 3-5 complicated interdependent steps), yielding much longer needles than any other technology at much lower cost, and providing a level of unequaled robustness and strength.
What Is a SĀSO™ Microneedle Array?
Microneedle arrays are comprised of hundreds of hollow needles each as big as a human hair. Until now they were useful only for injecting substances only as deep as a millimeter. SĀSO™ processing has changed that with low-cost robust microneedles of varying length, long enough to access very deep tissues, vastly expanding the viable market.

SĀSO™: Self-Assembly Sealed-Origami
How They’re Made:
- 3 MEMS Steps: Cut, Curl, Seal
- Only 1 photomask step
- Minimal material removal (excellent tool utilization)
- Tolerates high tool variability
- Significant reduction in cost
