microsampling in proteomics: mass spec, multiplexed protein biomarkers, and improving patient outcomes

Posted by Neoteryx on Nov 6, 2019 5:45:00 AM

New work using microsampling in proteomics has transformative implications for science and research, for patient outcomes, and for the way labs do business.

"Having spent years attempting to discover new protein biomarkers, the most interesting and highly motivating thing about our proteomics work is how we might now be able to bring it to the stage where it has impact by improving patient outcomes," says Dr. Stephen Pennington of University College Dublin, whose work in proteomics using Mitra® microsampling devices has indeed begun to garner wider attention.

8 steps to implement a telemedicine program

Posted by Neoteryx on Nov 1, 2019 8:25:00 AM

Telemedicine involves providing healthcare services to patients remotely using telecommunication tools like smartphones and computers. Leveraging advances in patient monitoring and smarter healthcare, it has the potential to minimize or eliminate traditional healthcare challenges. However, its implementation requires a well-thought-out plan.

The following is a guideline on how to implement a telemedicine program:

pediatric clinical trials: what do the patients (and parents) think?

Posted by Neoteryx on Oct 22, 2019 6:15:00 AM

Pediatric clinical trials aim at boosting public health by ensuring safety in child medications. Clinical trials involving children pose challenges distinct from those focused on adults. Approximately 40% of the tests carried out between 2008 and 2011 were uncompleted.

The challenges preventing successful clinical trials are economic, ethical, physiological, and pharmacometric. One big reason is the collection of venous blood. But that's starting to change.

low-resourced regions: microsampling makes albendazole research smarter and simpler

Posted by Neoteryx on Oct 14, 2019 5:07:00 AM

The Swiss Tropical and Public Health Institute is at the forefront of important research using Volumetric Absorptive Microsampling (VAMS®) technology and Mitra® microsampling devices in low-resourced regions. Recently, it tested Mitra® devices against more traditional Dried Blood Spot (DBS) cards in pediatric PK studies in rural Côte d’Ivoire.
