Your biggest hurdles in running clinical trials? Finding, recruiting and retaining trial subjects who object to frequent site visits and stressful blood draws. What if your trial participants could skip the site visits and stressful blood draws? Make it easy for people to participate in your clinical trial from home by using remote blood collection devices and kits. Read how researchers and trial sponsors use Mitra Blood Collection Kits and a range of e-Solutions to eliminate in-person visits. Remote sampling overcomes the most common objections to clinical trials: time & the burden of participation.
Altasciences, a contract research organization offering end-to-end drug development and bioanalytical services, helps drug trial managers leverage remote blood collection and microsampling to improve efficiencies and expand trial capacity without sacrificing accuracy and sensitivity. Their labs are optimized for processing remote blood samples collected by trial subjects and sent through the mail. As early adopters of remote Mitra® devices with VAMS® technology from Neoteryx, the Altasciences team has experience and expertise in supporting virtual clinical trials.

Are virtual clinical trials better? How feasible are they? Find answers to these questions and more by reading studies and case examples in our Virtual Clinical Trials Resource Bundle. Experts from CROs, labs, universities and research organizations describe how remote sampling allows them to generate data that correlates to the plasma gold standard, and helps them:
In the US, use of the Mitra device with blood is limited to research and non-diagnostic applications. In the US, the device is not for use with saliva samples intended for clinical DNA testing. In many countries outside the US, the Mitra device is approved as a remote blood sample collection device for some clinical applications, as referenced in some content included here.
