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.

blood microsampling and breakthrough bioanalysis: even more extraction methods examined

by Neoteryx | 1 min read

We're tremendously proud of, and excited for, the work being done by independent research groups in developing extraction methodologies for Mitra® samples. These groups have developed and validated their own powerful methods for the determination of immunosuppressants and antiepileptic drugs (AEDs) using Volumetric Absorptive Microsampling (VAMS™) technology.

Now, by popular demand and as a testament to the rapid growth in use of Mitra devices within the scientific community, we've added a second volume, examining even more detailed examples of bioanalysis of analytes extracted from Mitra tips.

These documents are available for complimentary and immediate download. They include:

  • Pre-extraction strategies
  • Whole blood to plasma correlations
  • Extraction methodology details
  • Preparing QCs and standards

Here at Neoteryx, we advance the science of blood microsampling through collaboration with leaders in science, research, and healthcare, in a spirit of transparency and love of shared knowledge. Our technology succeeds when our collaborators and customers succeed.

Download these useful and informative documents today, and discover the scientific research being done on the front lines of the blood microsampling revolution.
