In recent decades, improvements in devices and techniques for at-home blood sampling have cleared the way for simple, accurate, and non-invasive sampling. These developments eliminate the need for patients to travel to a clinic frequently for testing and monitoring.
Technological advancements must facilitate more respectful and productive relationships with our collaborators from the animal kingdom. Animal testing is in the era of the 3Rs, which means replacing, reducing, and refining alternatives.
Animal testing is a necessary component of the pharmaceutical industry's preclinical research. Here are a few areas of innovation that professionals in that field, and adjacent areas, can't afford to ignore.

With the rapid introduction of self-tracking technology, individuals can monitor their physiological metrics in real-time. The capability allows us to keep within specific rates of exertion and anticipate when something may be going awry. In many cases, medical professionals can track patients remotely to determine current status, progress, or setbacks and make educated clinical decisions.
