smarter, simpler preclinical animal research: the power of microsampling

Posted by Neoteryx on Jul 31, 2018 11:56:00 AM

Countless scientific breakthroughs are made possible in part by preclinical research using animal subjects. Microsampling - the collection of small, precise volumes of blood, as is done using Mitra devices - represents a more humane, more efficient way of doing experimental animal research in the pharmaceutical industry.

pk study of tacrolimus in rats: another VAMS success story

Posted by Neoteryx on Jul 18, 2018 2:02:00 AM

Volumetric absorptive microsampling (VAMS™) technology has been hailed as a breakthrough in the world of medicine, having been ascertained as an effective way to collect small, precise and accurate volumes of blood (10 or 20 µL) regardless of the hematocrit. The sampling of biological fluids, especially whole blood on a porous hydrophilic tip has also been made easier by VAMS. Over the last two years, various therapeutic drug monitoring and pharmacokinetic studies have been conducted with VAMS, thus giving more insight into the technology. More professionals are now utilizing VAMS devices to sample a smaller volume of blood from rodents, particularly in the preclinical setting.

preclinical research: how microsampling cuts costs

Posted by Neoteryx on Nov 15, 2017 6:26:00 AM

Animal studies are expensive and time-consuming, and sometimes raise ethical questions. In the past, researchers have often used more animal blood and lives than was necessary. Now there is pressure to reduce the number of animals used in any study, for both ethical and financial reasons.
