Keywords: microneedle, BioMEMS, drug delivery

The research and development of microneedles are reviewed briefly and microneedles are classified. The features of those microneedles are analyzed and discussed. Based on those analysis, a new microneedle structure has been proposed. Those microneedles have some strong points, such as, easy to fabricate and bond, having high needle density and good quality. In addition, the microneedles can avoid the clogging owing to process of piece. The microneedles’ fabrication and structures are simulated. The results are satisfactory
