Imagine a clinic without walls ... a clinical trial that reaches beyond borders.
Blood sample collection at home is revolutionizing science and healthcare.
Learn how you can use Mitra® microsamplers to provide study subjects & patients
a convenient way to self-collect specimen samples for mailing directly to the lab.
A major challenge of clinical studies is recruiting and retaining participants.
Frequent reasons cited for low recruitment and high dropout rates include:
Similarly, patients undergoing therapeutic drug monitoring (TDM), find regular clinic visits for tests to be burdensome, leading to poor adherence, compliance, and patient experience.
Remote specimen collection with Mitra® microsamplers eliminates frequent clinic visits for tests, reducing the burden on patients and breaking the barriers to study participation.
To overcome barriers to subject recruitment and retention, many study sponsors provide dried blood spot (DBS) cards to participants for convenient home blood collection. Yet, traditional DBS cards have significant disadvantages. DBS cards are difficult to use, leading to many low-quality samples that cannot be included in studies. Labs seek alternatives to DBS that would still enable subjects to self-collect blood samples at home.
Enter the Mitra® microsampler, which is designed for dried blood sampling with precision. This easy-to-use device allows participants to self-collect an accurate blood specimen at home. The Mitra offers the convenience of home blood collection and the same benefits as DBS, but overcomes the disadvantages of DBS to consistently deliver reliable results.
