Virtual research studies, clinical trials & health surveys are possible during the coronavirus pandemic with Mitra® - our remote
specimen collection devices powered by VAMS® technology!
In this “SeroSurvey,” researchers will collect blood samples using Mitra blood collection kits from Neoteryx and analyze those samples from 10,000 volunteers to provide critical data for epidemiological models. Results will examine antibodies against COVID-19 and help illuminate the extent to which the novel coronavirus has spread undetected.
Neoteryx’s Technical Director highlights several study papers in peer-reviewed publications to provide a summary of research studies using extraction methodology for Mitra remote blood sampling devices in ligand binding assays.
As researchers around the world race to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic, UR CTSI Co-Director Martin Zand, M.D., Ph.D., is rapidly adapting previous research to develop a potential diagnostic test that would require just a few drops of blood to detect the fast-spreading disease.
This study successfully measures immunity for up to 33 strains of influenza virus. Twenty-one healthy volunteers were used to evaluate the feasibility of combining the benefits of at-home patient-centric sampling, with the mPlex-Flu assay.
Wake Forest Baptist Health will begin a year-long random sample of its patients looking for coronavirus antibodies, an attempt to get a sense of how widespread the virus is and was in North Carolina. Neoteryx blood collection kits will be used in the study to sample 300 people in each of 40 counties — 20 served by Wake Forest Baptist Health and 20 served by Atrium — to build a large enough population.
Neoteryx’s Technical Director highlights the study details of the paper: Wang J, et. al (2019) Application of VAMS to measure multidimensional anti-influenza IgG antibodies by the mPlex-Flu assay. Journal of Clinical and Translational Science, 3: 332–343.
CountOnMe® is a special program that provides young patients an at-home blood collection kit using a finger-prick method and Mitra® microsampler from Neoteryx. If your child is a stable transplant patient, and you live in the UK, you may be able to do at-home blood collection to check creatinine and tacrolimus level.
AVISE® MTX provides accurate measurement of active methotrexate (MTX) metabolites and MTXPGs to help physicians assess their patients' drug exposure and adjust treatment as needed. With the novel AVISE Touch capillary blood collection method using Neoteryx technology, venipuncture blood draws are eliminated.
Phosphorous is currently enrolling research participants in its study focused on validation of at-home collection of blood samples that will be sent back to the lab and used for the diagnosis of COVID-19 Infection via RT-qPCR and serum antibodies.
Neoteryx’s Technical Director highlights the study details of the paper: Qu. Y, et. al (2017) Capillary Blood Collected on a Volumetric Absorptive Microsampling (VAMS) Device for Monitoring Hydroxychloroquine in Rheumatoid Arthritis Patients. Journal of Pharmaceutical and Biomedical Analysis, 140: 334–341.
