The value of reduced blood sample sizes is becoming apparent in human testing. Dried Blood Spot (DBS) sampling has already proven to be a viable alternative for many applications in blood analysis, but Microsampling using VAMS technology offers even more advantages. Safe Harbour Wellness is pleased to offer this innovative type of testing to provide a convenient, easy and rapid turnaround process for our customers.
Benefits of Microsampling
In order to bring diagnostic blood testing to providers offices, pharmacies or a patient’s home, our Mitra Microsampling Device, offers new collection technology which is designed to:
- Collect capillary blood from the fingertip instead of blood from a vein in the arm.
- Capture & analyze minute samples of blood for analysis. The sample is collected via a simple finger prick, allowing a blood droplet to be absorbed into the Mitra Collection Device.
- Samples are held in a plastic protective case and can be mailed to our lab without the need of refrigeration or special handling.
