In clinical trials and clinical studies, as well as therapeutic drug monitoring, retaining participants is a serious challenge. Competing life demands and changes, logistical problems, and a lack of motivation and commitment can all lead participants to drop out, hurting the study and inconveniencing the organizers and faciliators.
After one training session, participants are ready to self-collect an accurate blood sample every time – whether in rural areas, low-resourced reigons, or homebound. Thus, remote sampling offers flexibility to deal with life demands. Mitra collection kits offer participants the ability to just sample-and-sendwhileeliminating costsand complexities associated with cold chain shipping. Needless to say, the implications in areas such as therapeutic drug monitoring, which require regular sample collection for extended periods of time, are potentially transformative.
This convenient alternative to clinic visits slices costs and promotes subject retention, empowering clinical trial administrators.
