Sampling device

The collection of numerous biological samples from a patient (microdialysates, blood etc.) has long been a challenge to both clinician and patient. In the artificial and stressful hospital environment, discomfort to the patient may result in levels of samples collected not being representative of levels in a patient’s everyday life. University of Bristol researchers have created a simple, portable, and compact device in which biological samples can be discretely collected at set intervals. Removing the need for a hospital setting, this device enables the patent to undertake normal activities with samples collected for prolonged periods of time.
