Take specimen collection out of the facility for new opportunities with sampling at home and beyond borders for decentralized clinical research with easier recruitment and improved adherence. Remotely collect precise, volumetric specimens from diverse populations with greater ease and high sampling success rates. Eliminate both reliance on trained staff for specimen collection and costly cold-chain storage and shipping. Process dried Mitra specimens in high-throughput workflows to generate quantitative data.
Validate Mitra Devices for Your Microsampling Initiatives
This simple device provides an economical way for you to get started with microsampling for bioanalytical, operational, and end-user validations.
Build Your Own Kits or Sample Large Cohorts Remotely
With this format you can collect many samples in the field and ship them back to the lab in bulk. You may prefer to insert them into your own all-in-one kit.
All-in-one Solution for Remote Specimen Collection
Let us do the work for you! We package our Mitra devices in convenient kits with all the supplies needed for sample collection & can ship these to your list of end-users.
Accession & Process Multiple Mitra Samples at Once
This high-throughput solution allows you to rapidly process Mitra microsamples for method development, plate building, extractions - or all of the above!

The Mitra device is not sold as a sterile product.
Evaluation kits are available on a case-by-case basis. A Neoteryx Microsampling Specialist will review the options with you during your initial project consult.
Dried specimen Mitra samples are compatible with common lab instrumentation, including but not limited to liquid-handling workstations, LC-MS/MS, ELISA, Multi-Plex Immunoassays, and other analyzers.
Mitra devices are able to volumetrically absorb most biological fluids including, but not limited to blood, serum, urine, tears, saliva, breast milk, cerebral spinal fluid, synovial fluid. End-users have also used Mitra devices to collect other fluids, such as water and methanol.
The Mitra device does not contain any stabilizing agents.
Yes, we can customize the Mitra device formats and collection kits to your needs. This may include additional barcodes, custom instructions, or other details specific to your project. Please ask about available customizations during your consult with a Neoteryx Microsampling Specialist.
All orders originate from the Neoteryx production division in the United States. Shipment lead times are dependent upon order volume but, typically, orders ship from Neoteryx within 7-10 business days after we receive your purchase order. We encourage you to follow up with your Microsampling Specialist to help you track your order through the shipment process.
Mitra devices are intended as a specimen collector and for the storage and transport of biological fluids. They are CE-IVD self-certified in the UK and EU, a Class 1 IVD in Australia, Brazil & China, Class B in South Africa, and registered with health agencies in Canada, Thailand, and Ukraine. In the United States, Mitra devices are for Research Use Only (RUO).
Yes, depending on the method developed, many analytes can be measured from one Mitra device.
Our standard collection kit includes a Mitra device packed in a specimen bag with a pouch of drying desiccant, lancets, gauze, bandages, return shipping envelope, and instructions for use. Ask your Microsampling Specialist how kits may be customized to include additional items, per your project needs.
There are three options to purchase Mitra devices from Neoteryx. You can pay by credit card, invoice (net 30 payment terms) or proforma invoice (prepay by wire transfer).
We sell direct to most countries globally with the exception of a few countries, where we work with authorized distributors. Please contact us for country-specific details.
