Need a More Efficient Way to Collect Blood?

Collecting blood for serology testing from research animals can be a challenging process that leads to increased stress in your animal. Exclusive to Charles River, our new HemaTIP™ microsampler simplifies this process by placing the collection media on the tip of an easy-to-hold stylus. The tip only needs to touch the blood, and its super-absorptive matrix media wicks the sample in 3–6 seconds.


This tutorial demonstrates how to utilize the Charles River HemaTIP™ microsampler for collecting blood specimens from your rodent colonies.



A comprehensive qualification study was conducted to demonstrate the suitability of HemaTIP™ microsampling for rodent serology. When compared to existing blood collection methods, HemaTIP™ was found to be more versatile, easier to use and less invasive.
