Traditional venipuncture for blood testing is a resource-heavy service for hospitals and independent labs to provide. Traditional blood draws performed by phlebotomists placing a needle in the vein of your arm can be stressful, as well as an inconvenient.
Accurate diagnoses, drug development, and research findings from blood samples are crucial to medical advancement and patient care, but the time has finally come for blood collection alternatives.
An advanced and convenient method for blood sample collection is known as microsampling. This innovative method, long used in neonatal settings, makes diagnosing and monitoring research study subjects or patients much simpler. Blood microsampling can easily be performed in remote settings, which can save your organization money, increase lab staff productivity, and boost study volunteer recruitment.
The cumbersome, slow and inefficient venipuncture blood sampling process can often be replaced by a simple, straightforward process of capillary sampling for clinical trials, drug trials, preclinical animal research, toxicology studies, and more. Venipuncture has become outdated because:
With microsampling, researchers, doctors, clinics and labs receive accurate blood analysis results faster, at lower cost than ever before.
