dc.description.abstract We present a new mechanism for achieving needle free jet injection that significantly reduces the power required to perform a given injection. Our 'compound ampoule' produces two phases of jet speed under a constant force input by changing the effective piston area part-way through the injection. In this paper we define the benefits associated with a compound ampoule, relative to those of the conventional single piston design, by developing expressions for the power and energy required to perform an injection. We demonstrate that a compound ampoule can reduce the maximum input power required to perform a jet injection to less than one fifth of that previously required, enabling motors of less than half the mass to perform the same injection. We then detail the development of a prototype compound ampoule injector. Results from testing of this prototype demonstrate the function of a compound ampoule and verify the expected reduction in the required power and energy. Injections into post mortem porcine tissue confirm that our compound ampoule prototype can achieve the delivery of 1 mL of liquid into post-mortem tissue at least as effectively as a conventional ampoule. This approach will advance progress toward light-weight and power-efficient needle-free jet injectors for transdermal drug delivery. en
