Mitra Cartridge capillary blood collection device. A needleless option for collecting dried blood specimens
“We can now sit at home and do a sample using the device, send it off, and get an accurate result without having to leave the comfort of our own home – It’s a lot less stressful, plus we don’t need to take a whole day out just to go for a blood test or clinic visit, which makes school attendance better.”

-Caroline Knapp, mother of a young kidney transplant patient in the UK

In the US, use of the Mitra device is limited to research and non-diagnostic applications. In many countries outside the US, the Mitra device can be used as a sample collection device for clinical diagnostic applications, as referenced in this content.
