Our Cost Calculator Shows How Much You Can Save On Clinical Trial Expenses

Volumetric Absorptive Microsampling (VAMS™) is a novel, economical, and innovative specimen collection technology that eliminates classic points of friction from the process of clinical trials. Not only is participant recruitment and compliance positively influenced, but unprecedented savings are achieved by eliminating cold chain shipping and storage. We've seen many customers save money as a result of implementing microsampling.

But the question remains: "How much money can we expect to save by replacing traditional venipuncture specimens with dry blood microsamples collected with the Mitra® device?"

This questioned is answered with the newly released Cost Calculator for Clinical Trials. Input your specimen quantity, number of shipments, and costs, and it provides an accurate estimate of what savings you can expect when you use microsampling in Phase I, Phase II, and Phase III Clinical Trials. You will receive a PDF (delivered via email) with a breakdown of your estimates, which you can use to plan a budget with your team. 

The Cost Calculator for Clinical Trials was designed in collaboration with Dr. Neil Spooner of Spooner Bioanalytical Solutions, Ltd. Dr. Spooner has more than 20 years of experience in the quantitative bioanalysis of drugs, metabolites, and biomarkers in the pharmaceutical industry and contract research organizations in the UK and USA.

The calculator is currently in beta, and your feedback will help us improve the experience. Give it a try today, and please let us know what you think!
