NFIT includes novice technology which enables the drugs to transfer directly through the skin, hardly causing breakage in the skin integrity. NFIT is a highly elaborated and sophisticated concept of drug delivery system which follows advanced method in which the drug will be delivered through the skin with the help of forces like shock waves , electrophoresis ,Lorentz or pressure by gas which can deliver the drug through skin by not using hypodermic needles. NFIT employs stronger energy which is sufficient to impel a particular drug formulation with a dose which is already premeasured, laden in distinct unique “cassettes” which can be equipped with the system. The NFIT devices can be categorized based on their mechanism of drug delivery, mode of work, type of load and site of delivery. Elimination of broken needles, consistent vaccine delivery, less pain and stress are some advantages where as higher start-up costs, higher requirements for training and maintenance and worker confidence in NFIT are some disadvantages.
