Both gripper and syringe could be mounted on a computer controlled micromotion system that would be operated by separate joy sticks in the hands of a biologist who could view:the surgery under a micro- scope. While this invention was intended for the biological field, there are many other applications for this technology. The process flow for the micromechanical syringe is as follows: 1.
