What Is Microsampling & How Does It Work?
- Blood sampling has been a fundamental diagnostic tool for years with up to 70% of all medical decisions guided by diagnostic test results that include blood sample assessments.
- Blood sampling is not always convenient with a large portion of the world's population being in remote areas with no quick access to medical facilities.
- Blood microsampling is an efficient and more simplified method of regular blood sampling that allows participants to draw their own blood and mail to laboratories for analysis.
The Microsampling Process
- Microsampling captures & analyses minute samples of blood for analysis and is performed by a simple finger prick, allowing a blood droplet to be absorbed to the collection device.
- Samples are held in a plastic protective case and can be mailed to laboratories without the need of refrigeration or special handling.
