pk study of tacrolimus in rats: another VAMS success story

Posted by Neoteryx on Jul 18, 2018 2:02:00 AM

Volumetric absorptive microsampling (VAMS™) technology has been hailed as a breakthrough in the world of medicine, having been ascertained as an effective way to collect small, precise and accurate volumes of blood (10 or 20 µL) regardless of the hematocrit. The sampling of biological fluids, especially whole blood on a porous hydrophilic tip has also been made easier by VAMS. Over the last two years, various therapeutic drug monitoring and pharmacokinetic studies have been conducted with VAMS, thus giving more insight into the technology. More professionals are now utilizing VAMS devices to sample a smaller volume of blood from rodents, particularly in the preclinical setting.

how to extract DNA from dried blood

Posted by Neoteryx on Jun 27, 2018 2:24:00 AM

Did you know that it’s possible to successfully extract DNA/RNA from dried blood spots even after 10 years? There is enough data to support this assertion. However, the best output can be achieved if storage is done at room temperature using dried samples. As technology evolves, microsampling has emerged as a crucial concept in medicine and healthcare alongside other groundbreaking innovations, representing the next generation of dried blood spot (DBS) technology.
