a brief history of remote patient monitoring

Posted by Neoteryx on Jan 15, 2019 5:15:00 AM

Remote patient monitoring as we know it started when the first two physicians consulted over a telephone, probably in the 1800s. (Consultations may have been carried out by smoke signals and heliograph before the telegraph, but there is no documentation.)

remote sampling: what it is, why it matters

Posted by Neoteryx on Aug 1, 2018 3:51:00 AM

Microsampling refers to the collection of small, precise volumes of blood or other biological fluid (10 or 20 microliters, in most cases), as done using Mitra® devices. Volumetric Absorptive Microsampling (VAMS™), the technology on which Mitra is based, was originally created to solve for the limitations of Dried Blood Spot (DBS) cards. However, due to its ease of use, VAMS is opening the door for a range of new uses.

what is microsampling? a look at the bigger picture

Posted by Emerson Dameron on Jun 1, 2018 4:41:00 AM

As our international and interpersonal networks grow larger and stronger, a little information can go a long way. Our world is getting smaller. Our technology is getting smaller, too. And it's getting a lot more powerful.

4 ways microsampling is changing the world

Posted by Emerson Dameron on Apr 4, 2018 4:44:00 AM

Thanks to advances in science, it is now possible to generate a large amount of data from a small amount of biological fluid. If appropriately collected, samples as small as 10 or 20 μL can yield enormous amounts of information. The process of collecting these small samples of blood, urine, or other such material is called microsampling.

pediatric pk studies under pressure: DBS vs. VAMS in Côte d’Ivoire

Posted by Neoteryx on Apr 2, 2018 4:44:00 AM

Scientists and researchers from the Swiss Tropical and Public Health Institute recently provided new, strong evidence for the efficacy of pediatric pharmacokinetic (PK) studies using Mitra® devices. They tested Mitra technology against standard-issue DBS cards, within the framework of a randomized controlled trial, on 35 school-aged children in rural Côte d’Ivoire infected with Schistosoma haematobium.
