As it literally opens the landscape with the magic of remote specimen collection, the use of Mitra® devices and Volumetric Absorptive Microsampling technology continues to gain steam within the rapidly expanding Health & Wellness sector.

mockup-well-bThe Spanish biotech company Biomeb includes Mitra microsampling devices as part of its new offering Well B®, a groundbreaking service that offers precise, individualized nutritional recommendations. The Well B system is designed to integrate metabolomic and biochemical data with other personal information such as medical history, nutritional profiles, and records of physical activity.

"Our Well B metabolomic tests not only allow our customers to monitor changes in their metabolisms, but also will lead to the generation of a history of their individual lifestyle responses," says Elias Daura (PhD, MBA), founder and CEO of Biomeb. "This allows us to provide them with personalized nutrition recommendations on a continuous basis to achieve their goals. Our customers are looking for more control over their own health and healthcare, and with the advent of our affordable new testing, there are new avenues for personalized treatment and precision medicine."

The Biomeb scientific team has been using Mitra devices for years, since the days when it worked under the auspices of the University of Lleida, said Daura. "Mitra microsampling provides us a novel, practical, and economical alternative to blood collection tubes and dried blood spot cards. The Mitra microsampler retains the advantages of dried blood spot cards and solves for their limitations. This is the most important point to us."

In the wake of recent successful initiatives with Quest and Alcala Labs, it is clear that microsampling is going to be an important facet of a new and fast-moving era in the field of Health & Wellness.
