Hey all,

Here's the deal, throughout medical history, blood collection is always done via venipuncture. I am researching for a truly original idea and thought of transdermal non-invasive blood withdrawal. The thing is searching pubmed and google doesnt reveal specifically any articles on such techniques. Plenty of articles of transdermal blood glucose measuring and others but nothing specifically on what I want.

So I hope to get help from people here who may have come across scientists who are doing work in this area. It may sound Star Trekkish but hey, all research got to start from somewhere...
