3D nano fish for effective drug delivery and detoxification

Nano-entities-based drug delivery in human body plays an immense role in curing diseases. Nanorobot is one such device used for an effective drug delivery. Microfish is a derivative model of nanorobot, developed by the team of San Diego research team, University of California. This model is designed using edge 3D printing technology under the basic concept of micro-robotics. The fish is just 30 microns thick and 120 microns long. The major function is to deliver the drug and involve in detoxification. The uniqueness of this robot is to swim in the bloodstream and reach various parts to reach to the entrapped drug in the human body.
