This dataset pertains to a study involving the use of 3D printed hollow microneedles (HMNs) for the detection of c-reactive protein and procalcitonin. It includes:

- Chemical modification of the HMNs surface to enhance its ability to uptake fluids rapidly;
- the mechanical properties and skin penetration of both HMNs;
- Characterizations' of the material, including FTIR, TGA and AFM;
- Cytotoxicity assessment of the HMNs;
- Uptake of CRP and PCT in solutions and detection using LFTs.

The data provides a suggestion towards the use of HMNs for the effective rapid diagnostics of inflammation markers.
