Wootzano Limited, a Scottish company in Edinburgh with its manufacturing base in Sedgefield, County Durham, was created to improve the way medicine is administered. This gave rise to the Nanject (previously known as Nanopatch) project which originated from an undergraduate thesis, aiming to create a pharmaceutical patch that can deliver drugs replacing traditional needles or syringes with nanoneedles. Today, Wootzano has a novel patent-pending technology for use in flexible electronics, robotics, electronic skin, medical devices, chemical/bio-sensing and drug delivery systems.
