Neoteryx is focused on delivering simple, quantitative, and automatable microsampling solutions for biological samples which enable convenient sample collection anywhere, anytime, by anyone. Neoteryx customers do their work across the biological spectrum.
Thanks to ongoing advances in technology, it is now feasible to get an enormous amount of data from very small amounts of biological fluid. And yet, until recently, there wasn’t a good way to collect these small specimens.
Older methods involved getting splotches of blood on special cards — a splotch is not a precise unit of measurement — leading to challenges such as the hematocrit bias, awkward automation, and more. Venipuncture was stressful and cold chain biohazard shipping was often cost-prohibitive, but there was no alternative that covered all the right bases.
That changed when a new wave of tenacious scientists began to take the issue of capillary blood sampling more seriously. In the last few years, we’ve seen the dawning era of Volumetric Absorptive Microsampling (VAMS™), driven by the work of Neoteryx and its remarkable Mitra® devices.
Mitra devices are specially designed to collect precise, volumetrically accurate dried blood samples. Thanks to these innovations, professionals in fields ranging from pediatrics to clinical trials to monitoring antiepileptics and tacrolimus can collect samples in the perfect volumes their life-changing, world-changing work requires.
Meanwhile, success has not changed the way Neoteryx does business. Neoteryx is known for the premium it places in transparency, sharing, as it does, all its research and results with anyone who may want to learn more. Much of the spectacular achievements and progress associated with Neoteryx, VAMS™, and Mitra come from close collaboration with trusted partners, including some of the biggest names in the worlds of clinical trials, clinical research, hospital labs, pediatrics, therapeutic drug monitoring, and far beyond.
Neoteryx does work that benefits the communities of science, research, healthcare, health and wellness, and more. When these communities benefit — along with providers, patients, participants, and pediatric caregivers — Neoteryx benefits.
Now that Neoteryx is bringing the wondrous Mitra breakthrough into new realms — such as extraction automation, precision medicine, and other emerging areas of smarter healthcare and patient-centric medicine — we’re proud to acknowledge what we’ve accomplished in collaboration with our partners, our all-star Advisory Council, and our community.
Neoteryx is the blood collection innovator.
CE/IVD and FDA Class 1 Mitra devices are available in various configurations, including four-pack clamshells and Blood Collection Kits.
The Mitra Microsampler class I medical device is for direct specimen collection of blood and other biological fluids. It is not specific to any clinical test, and is not for use in diagnostic procedures. Use of the Mitra Microsampler in Laboratory Developed Tests (LDTs) requires further processing including the establishment of performance characteristics and successful validation by the laboratory in a manner consistent with CLIA requirements.
