the microsampling blog In some territories, which are listed in our website footer, our microsampling devices are supplied for therapeutic or IVD use as referenced in some of our content. Outside of those territories our devices are supplied for research use only (RUO).

prepare your lab for a better future: how microsampling works for lab directors

by Neoteryx | 1 min read


Advances in bioanalytical techniques has created the potential to use smaller sample volumes for assessing drug and chemical exposure in many biological fluids, including blood, plasma, or serum. The Mitra® device opens the door for molecular research labs, animal testing facilitiesand others to exceed common organization goals of running a more efficient operation, reducing costs, providing better service, and generating meaningful results. Volumetric Absorptive Microsampling technology faciliates sample collection that is simple, economical, and efficient.

When implemented successfully, microsampling allows lab directors to report new findings more quickly. Users collect reliable data more efficiently, which improves their ability to publish results. 

In molecular research, the CE-IVD, Class I Mitra microsampling device has successfully overcome traditional sampling deficiencies and is proven to be compatible with off-the-shelf DNA / RNA purification and isolation kits so that you can generate important results with microsamples of blood. In the realm of animal research, microsampling has been shown to generate better TK profiles, allowing lab directors to combine PK/PD and/or efficacy assessments in the same animal.

Let the promise of VAMS® microsampling deliver phenomenal results to both your lab and organization! Remote microsample collection for dried specimen analysis opens up new and exciting opportunities. It enables better access to populations near and far, reduces animal usage and reliance on satellite animal populations, increases productivity, and expands operations and profitably.

  • Expand your service offerings and research studies
  • Suitable for low or compromised blood volume donors
  • Improve adherence with microsampling ease and convenience
  • Simplify sample processing workflows with dried blood

Contact us today for more information on this technological breakthrough for lab directors in pre-clinical research (animal testing), molecular research, and beyond.
