Discussion of method development and validation, sample handling, additional experimental considerations for patient-centric sampling.
Microsampling and patient-centric sampling is a relatively new and emerging field that has been introduced with success in both the preclinical and clinical space. Although there have been significant advancements made on the collection side, there remains challenges and considerations on the lab side of things. This talk will touch on additional experimental considerations and tips for processing and handling samples.
Clinical dosage of toxic and essential elements in blood is well established; however, the collection method nowadays is still by venipuncture. This method has several drawbacks and is not suited for everyone, especially pediatric patients. Fortunately, volumetric absorptive microsampling (VAMS®) has been shown to bring significant advantages over venipuncture for blood sampling.
This webinar provides an overview of the development and validation as well as the performance of a method for the quantification by ICP-MS/MS of various toxic and essential elements in blood collected on VAMS tips.

PCSIG Webinar On Demand -
Finger-prick sampling for the monitoring of tacrolimus, creatinine and hemoglobin in kidney transplant recipients
Speakers: Nils Tore Vethe (Head of Section, Department of Pharmacology, Oslo University Hospital) and Karsten Midtvedt (Senior Physician in Nephrology, Department of Transplantation Medicine, Oslo University Hospital)
Finger-prick sampling emerges as an attractive tool for therapeutic drug monitoring and associated diagnostics during follow-up in different patient populations. Kidney transplant recipients constitute a group with likely valuable gain from this concept. It is necessary to meet requirements for quality, efficiency, user-friendliness and new forms of interaction in order to achieve successful implementation in clinical practice. Aspects related to technical operations and quality, factors important for success, as well as identified challenges will be highlighted in this webinar.
This presentation provides an overview of the distinct requirements for routine implementation of dried blood microsampling.
