What is VAMS Technology?

Mitra® microsampling devices are powered by patent-pending VAMS™ (Volumetric Absorptive Microsampling) technology that enables accurate and precise collection of a fixed volume, reducing or eliminating the volumteric blood hematocrit assay-bias associated with the dried blood spotting (DBS) technique. 

Mitra microsamplers facilitate blood specimen collection with minimal training and without a phlebotomist or specialized lab equipment. 

  • Collect blood samples from animals, individuals, or tubes
  • Blood sample in the clinic or remotely
  • Gather fixed volumes of fluid for dependable analytical data
  • Increase lab efficiency due to automatable extractions
  • Reduce costs from the elimination of cold chain shipping and biohazard transportation
