A microwave (MW)-assisted crosslinking process to prepare hydrogel-forming microneedle (MN) arrays was evaluated. The effects of the crosslinking process on the MN arrays characteristics was evaluated. The results suggest that MN arrays prepared using the MW assisted process had equivalent properties to those prepared conventionally, but can be produced 30 times faster.
