The smart insulin patch” consists of hundreds of microneedles which store insulin and contain glucose sensors. When the blood glucose level is too high, the microneedles will automatically release insulin, resulting in a hypoglycemic effect.

Microport Scientific has arranged a lead investment of 5.8 mill USD to bring this technology to Greater China.”
