A patient-friendly blood collection device that produces pure plasma samples for simple laboratory analysis

Project description

Patient-friendly blood collection for the test

Tens of millions of blood tests are are performed annually in Europe as part of regular health check-ups or assessment. Testing involves blood collection and the preparation of plasma, a time-intensive and expensive process. This EU-funded project aims to finalise the development and subsequent commercial introduction of a specialised device for blood collection and plasma preparation. Named HemaXis DX, the device uses microfluidics technology to collect and immediately prepare accurate volumes of plasma for laboratory analysis. A major bonus, this device collects blood painlessly from the fingertip with on the spot plasma sample preparation unlike the traditional venepuncture method.
