Dissolving polymeric microneedle arrays and hydrogel-forming microneedle arrays have attracted much attention during recent years due mainly to their biocompatibility and capacity for enhanced drug delivery. Nevertheless, for the production of this type of devices, typically, a drying step is required. Microneedles are prepared following a micromoulding technique using aqueous blends of Gantrez® S-97. Currently, production of microneedles arrays involves a long drying process of 48 hours. Therefore alternative drying methods were investigated including microwave radiation and hot air convection.
