Harpera (RUO beta test)

The Harpera™ is under development as a skin microbiopsy device to enable minimally invasive collection & storage of skin cells for more ethical and scar-free biopsy procedures. This device is currently supplied for research and investigational use only.

Harpera may be available in future as a medical device for therapeutic or diagnostic use, after additional beta testing.

minimally invasive + scarless + convenient = Harpera

The Harpera™ device was developed to offer a minimally invasive, suture-free option for scarless skin microbiopsy. Harpera is intended to facilitate easier sampling & a more ethical approach to longitudinal monitoring in studies of skin cancers, skin diseases and conditons.

Designed for Easy Portability

The small size and portability of the Harpera™ device make it a user-friendly departure from conventional biopsy instruments and more invasive procedures that may require stitches.

The Harpera™ is sterilized via gamma irradiation & arrives individually wrapped.

Developed for Easy Sampling

End-users will appreciate the quick and nearly painless biopsy microsampling experience offered with the Harpera™ device.

Early beta testers have reported more comfort and ease during biopsies with Harpera, as well as a faster healing time after sampling.

Destined for Easier Biopsies

Harpera™ offers many potential benefits for researchers & dermatology experts. It is suited for sampling in sensitive areas, such as the face.
Harpera's portability facilitates remote skin biopsy collection for easy assessment of skin type or longitudinal monitoring of skin conditions.

the future of skin biopsy is at hand

Watch this video report from Pippa Sheehan at Channel 10 News First in Australia to learn how Trajan Scientific and Medical teamed up with researchers at UniQuest, the research commercialization company of The University of Queensland (UQ), to improve skin microbiopsy procedures.

harpera's future depends on you!

We seek research beta testers for our microbiopsy device. 

This microbiopsy device is designed to collect only the necessary amount of cells required for analytical testing in order to improve every participant's biopsy experience & ensure high-quality results. Please contact us to schedule a consultation to become a beta tester.
