Explore Smarter Specimen Collection for Biological Fluids
By eliminating the need for venipuncture the Mitra® Microsampling device, based on VAMS™ technology, facilitates an easier and more comfortable donor experience, particularly for children and the elderly. It also contributes to expanding participant outreach, cutting costs by eliminating cold chain shipping, simplifying workflows and enables collection of blood specimens in non-clinical settings.
With Volumetric Absorptive Microsampling (VAMS) technology, dependable data can be obtained from dried blood specimens as small as 10 and 20 µL. Learn more about the standard variables similarities between microsampling and wet blood in our clinical research case studies and articles.
Cuts Costs by Eliminating The Need For Biohazard Couriers
The Mitra® microsampler combines the best of wet sampling, dried blood spotting (DBS), and microsampling technology with a state-of-the-art collection device that is simple to use.
- Smaller volumes are simpler to handle, especially in remote or at home settings
- Generate data that bridges to standard plasma results
- Reduce costs associated with cold chain shipping
And unlike traditional dried blood spot (DBS) cards, blood specimens collected with Mitra microsampler deliver a reliable fixed volume every time, regardless of blood hematocrit percentage
