The microsampling technique uses smaller samples for bioanalytical evaluation in an effort to refine blood collection. Consequently, we are able to reduce the number of animals required and lessen the level of stress on those animals that have to be used.

Capillary microsampling has been successfully applied across Charles River in the collection and analysis of large and small molecule bioanalytical samples.
