Capitainer P

E: A connection is helpful

Capitainer produce a microsampling device for the accurate collection of a 10uL blood spot. They also have a device, the Capitainer P, which collects plasma/serum. The device is designed to work with a lancet so blood/plasma can be collected remote to the laboratory and posted back.

Have you validated this method, if so, how and what were the results of the validation?​

No. We have been exploring the use of Capitainer, Mitra and Hemaxis in comparison to a DBS collected onto filter paper. The Capitainer P which collects the serum/plasma has only just been launched on to the market.

How quickly could this be deployed and what are the dependencies?​

Would need to contact the company. I believe it may be in use in Sweden already for COVID related work.

What is the likely production volume?​

n/a

What are the risks and barriers to using this at scale?​

n/a

Who are you already partnering with on this?

Christoper Aulin, Capitainer

How does this fit into a tracked sample pathway?

Product can be barcoded. Sample disc is pre-punched so does not require an automated punching machine.
