hemaPEN

hemaPEN® research use only

hemaPEN® is designed to redefine blood collection and storage, and to enable collection of samples that otherwise could or would not be collected.

Features and benefits

hemaPEN provides a minimally invasive and convenient sampling procedure for collecting four identical dried blood spot (DBS) based samples. Compared with conventional DBS sampling tools, hemaPEN delivers volumetric accuracy and precision during sample collection, thereby providing a superior sample for analyte measurement.

The contained and tamper resistant nature of hemaPEN maintains sample integrity throughout collection and storage which minimizes contamination risk and contribute to improvement in analysis.

Recommended applications

Collecting microsamples of whole blood, serum, plasma or other biological fluids for research use only.

Product specifications

hemaPEN functionality remains consistent independent of DBS substrate. Each hemaPEN is identified through a specific model number which references DBS substrate material, volume of capillaries and hemaPEN model type.

Model number Substrate Volume reference Model
D300S D* (226™) 300 = 2.74 μL S = Standard (base model)
W300S W† (903®) 300 = 2.74 μL S = Standard (base model)
