Trajan hemaPEN blood sampling and storage device

Friday, 04 September, 2015 | Supplied by: Trajan Scientific Australia Pty Ltd

Trajan Scientific and Medical has announced the hemaPEN blood collection and storage device. Harnessing the benefits of dried blood spot (DBS) sampling in a portable format, hemaPEN offers precision blood sampling with the click of a button via its familiar pen design. It can easily be used by anyone, including the young, the elderly and people with disabilities.

The device allows people to collect an uncontaminated and precise volume of their own blood from the fingertip at home, eliminating the need to travel to a medical clinic. This microsample can then be placed in the mail and analysed by a laboratory. Not only does this save time, but the ready-to-use DBS sample is said to enable the laboratory to deliver more definitive test results.

The first iteration of the product provides a DBS format ready for LC-MS analysis. The company is now working on future versions with various interfaces, potentially with in-built sensing technology.
