Learn how to take TDM out of the clinic and into your patients' homes with our TDM Research Resource Bundle. With new technologies, remote sampling can now be done conveniently by anyone, anytime, anywhere.
In the US, use of the Mitra device is limited to research and non-diagnostic applications. In many countries outside the US, the Mitra device can be used as
a sample collection device for clinical diagnostic applications, as referenced in some content included here.
Our TDM Research Resource Bundle can help you easily adopt new sample collection technologies in both the field and the lab. Whether you are a doctor looking to build a personalized remote therapeutic drug monitoring program for your patients, or a clinical researcher searching for TDM device sampling alternatives, look no further! When patients can self-manage sample collection at home this helps them adhere to an appropriate drug regimen, while eliminating unnecessary and time-consuming travel to the clinic.
After getting a kidney transplant, patients must get frequent blood draws for therapeutic drug monitoring (TDM) to track blood concentration levels of immunosuppressive drugs,. Immunosuppressive therapy helps a patient's body accept the new organ and remain healthy, but maintaining the appropriate drug level requires many clinic visits for close monitoring by the care team. The 'Count On Me' kidney transplant program at the NHS' Nottingham Children's Hospital in the UK has made things easier for pediatric patients and their families by providing at-home blood collection kits to enable remote TDM.
Being able to self-manage their blood sampling for TDM has improved the quality of life for patients and their families, saving them time, travel, and exposure to contagions.
In the US, use of the Mitra device with blood is limited to research and non-diagnostic applications. In the US, the device is not for use with saliva samples intended for clinical DNA testing. In many countries outside the US, the Mitra device is approved as a remote blood sample collection device for some clinical applications, as referenced in some content included here.
Safer-at-home, simpler, smarter, and more convenient.
With remote microsampling, therapeutic drug monitoring (TDM) is more convenient and comfortable thus making compliance with tough drug regimens more achievable. Download this bundle of groundbreaking case studies and research insights.
