Reimagining the
Injection Experience

The Injection Experience is more than a moment - it is a cyclical journey, where experiences surrounding anticipation, preparation and injection have a cumulative impact on the health of people with diabetes.

Droplet Micron has been designed to deliver the best injection experience.


"Ok, just tried this best needle ever for my Diabetes injection — it's the "shortest and thinnest" pen needle ever! I don't even feel the needle - it makes you actually look forward to your injection"
-Micron User


Research suggests that anxiety, distress, or phobias are present in upward of 94% of insulin injectors with up to 42% reporting that anxiety impacts adherence.

At 34G x 3.5mm, Droplet Micron is the shortest and thinnest pen needle, ever!



Droplet Micron was designed to help free people with diabetes from this routinely anxious cycle so that people injecting diabetes medications feel better about every injection, every time.

Injection experiences are inconsistent enhancing anticipatory anxiety. Furthermore, people who have good glycemic management, HbA1C 7% or less, report a significantly lower fear of needles than those with HbA1c>7%.

“Even though I inject every day, I still hesitate before my injections.”

Shorter and thinner needles cause less anxiety, pain and discomfort, and lead to better acceptance and adherence to insulin.



The needle acts as a visual stimulus for pain perception. Just seeing the needle length is correlated to painful insertions (P=0.043). Furthermore, shorter and thinner needles, provoke less painful insertions, bleeding, and bruising.

“I want a needle that’s so small it seems almost invisible”


Shorter and thinner needles are expected to relieve patient pain and fear caused by the visual stimulus of the needle’s appearance.


Clinical studies demonstrate that penetration force is correlated with insertion pain with higher gauge needles reporting less occurrence and intensity of pain. 47% of patients report that they would improve their adherence if a product eased pain.

In the PICASSO study, 34Gx3.5mm pen needles demonstrated a reduction in the mean peak penetration force by up to 50% P<0.0001.

“The difference is noticeable (with Micron)!
It was smooth and needed less force.”

A thinner needle will reduce needle penetration force (PF) and patients can expect a more comfortable injection due to experiencing less pain

A dialogue with ADCES on Reimagining the Injection Experience for people with diabetes

How a person injects their medication is just as important as taking it. Learn practical ways to optimize the injection experience for people with diabetes from Anu Rajora, a practicing pharmacist and director of marketing at HTL-STREFA. She shares a person-centered approach for reimagining the injection experience and discusses how diabetes care and education specialists can help break the cycle of negative injection experiences.
