Study Description
Brief Summary:
This study will evaluate intracutaneous delivery of 0.1, 0.25 and 0.5 milliliter volumes of saline from the FLUGEN 101.2 investigational microneedle-based device.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment
Influenza Device: FLUGEN 101.2 device

Detailed Description:
An intracutaneous delivery device will be evaluated for ability to inject various volumes of saline into subjects skin.

Outcome Measures

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. The primary objective is to evaluate the safety and tolerability/reactogenicity of various saline volumes delivered from the FLUGEN 101.2 microneedle-based device as evidenced by change of dose site appearance over time. [ Time Frame: 30 minutes, 24 hours, ~ 1 week ]
    Observe injection sites for change of appearance post-dose including initial wheal formation and subsequent resolution.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. A secondary objective of this study is to evaluate the mechanical elimination of fluid from the device. [ Time Frame: 3 minutes ]
    Evaluate ability of device to dispense targeted dose volume.
