remote sampling: what it is, why it matters

at home blood sample collection  of capillary blood microsamples with the Mitra DeviceMicrosampling refers to the collection of small, precise volumes of blood or other biological fluid; 10 or 20 microliters, in most cases. Microsampling collection devices allows for participants to take their own blood samples at home or elsewhere, cutting down on visits to the clinic.

A recent patented technology known as Volumetric Absorptive Microsampling  (VAMS®) is now being applied in a wide range of industries, including toxicology studies, therapeutic drug monitoring, biomonitoring of environmental toxins, and more.

VAMS precision and ease of use is best experienced in its remote sampling applications allowing for quantitative blood samples to be collected with the Mitra® device anywhere, at any time, by almost anyone, with minimal training.

The Mitra microsampler allows participants to experience a new ease, by taking sampling out of the clinic. Allowing patients to spend less time in the waiting room and more time in the living room. VAMS opens the door to remote patient monitoring for therapeutic drug monitoring, clinical trials, and other healthcare endeavors simpler and less disruptive for all involved. was originally created to solve for the limitations of Dried Blood Spot (DBS) cards. 



It also improves access in low-resourced regions. Microsampling enables access to hard-to-reach populations in healthcare and research. Sampling can now be self-administered on mountaintops, in the rainforest, or within disadvantaged or isolated communities and populations. At Neoteryx, we're just getting started exploring the revolutionary implications and applications of remote sampling. Contact one of our trained Microsampling Specialists today to learn more and discuss how microsampling makes blood collection smarter and simpler and what remote sampling means for you.
