Innovative Medical Device

TAP is an FDA-cleared device that collects blood painlessly using an array of tiny needles called micro needles. Users simply push a button and blood is vacuumed into the device; samples are anti-coagulated and ready for lab transport. Researchers hope the device can reduce the number of patients who delay or forego medical tests that rely on drawn blood. It could also be a helpful resource for clinical trials, pharmacies, athletic monitoring, and more.
