The rise of blood microsampling technology has dramatically simplified the process of blood collection. In many cases, it is no longer necessary to undergo painful venipuncture, to involve phlebotomists and complex lab equipment, or to use dry ice and biohazard shipping to get the blood sample safely to the clinic. Now, instead, there’s finger-prick / finger-stick sampling.
Volumetric Absorptive Microsampling (VAMS™) technology, developed by Neoteryx, combines the best of dried blood spot cards and other similar older dried blood collection methods while resolutely solving for their limitations (the hematocrit bias, significantly, among many others).
The rise of microsampling is explained by several factors:
With this method, almost anyone (with minimal training) can collect a small, precise sample of blood (or another biological fluid), anywhere, at any time. It can be done on mountainside treks, in low-resourced regions, or even in a patient’s own den.
The process is so smart, so simple, nearly anyone can do it correctly with ease:
Why is this process so important? Microsampling, while absurdly simple, has numerous applications across the spectrum of health and wellness.
One of the most important areas in which microsampling is having an impact is the realm of remote patient monitoring. Find out how microsampling technology provides an important missing link in the RPM ecosystem and provides a secret weapon for those in pursuit of more patient-centric and value-based care.
