A needless blood sampling option for pediatric patients

At-home specimen collection using a simple finger-prick with a lancet

Pediatric patients are often traumatized by blood draws, which poses challenges for clinicians who rely on blood testing to monitor children in their care. One solution is offering a less invasive alternative to venipuncture blood draws. The Mitra® Microsampler is a portable device designed for at-home specimen collection using a simple finger-prick with a lancet. This provides a better experience for young patients. Remote samples can be mailed directly to the lab for analysis, and blood test results can be accessed by healthcare providers and clinical trial managers.
