AQUAGOLD® FAQ

AQUAGOLD® FAQ

What are the advantages of AQUAGOLD® fine touch™?

The AQUAGOLD® fine touch™ has the proven ability to deliver micro-doses of a drug or biologic just under the dermis at a consistent depth and pain-free. This is a major advantage over the conventional syringe approach. 

What is the size of the microchannels?

The microchannels are 600 micrometers (0.6 mm) long and 130 micrometers (0.13 mm) wide, each thinner than a human hair.

How many microchannels are there? 

20

How is AQUAGOLD® fine touch™ different from microneedle devices?

The intended use of AQUAGOLD® fine touch™ is to microdose and microinject, whereas the intended use of other common microneedle devices is to puncture or wound the skin.

Can AQUAGOLD® fine touch™ be used multiple times?

No. AQUAGOLD® fine touch™ is designed and sterilized for single-patient, single use only.

Why are the AQUAGOLD® fine touch™ microchannels made of gold-plated stainless steel?

The surgical grade stainless steel provides the structural integrity of the microchannel. Pure gold has high biocompatibility with human skin, preventing irritation and allergic responses after use. Impurities and other metals may result in unnecessary irritation.

Is Aquavit Life Sciences Inc. an FDA registered establishment?
