Expanding the Potential of Blood Sampling

To stay well, people require information about their physiology and how the environment, food and drugs affect their health.

The Hemaxis microfluidic platform for micro blood sampling with passive plasma separation and accurate volume control dramatically increases the diagnostic potential of the dried blood format and promises to revolutionize blood sampling.

Advanced microfluidic technology
for blood sampling

HemaXis simplifies and reduces the cost of blood sampling enabling anyone to collect their own blood anywhere and at anytime.

Democratizing blood sampling

Hemaxis aims to simplify and reduce the cost of blood sampling by replacing the blood tube, nurse, collection center, cold storage, and centrifuge with reliable and easy to use devices based on microfluidic technology.

IMPROVED USER EXPERIENCE 
no intimidating needles, blood sampling by anyone, anywhere and at anytime

RELIABILITY OF SAMPLES
high sample quality, standardized (controlled volume) and secured blood collection

SIMPLIFIED LOGISTICS
no collection center, cold storage nor centrifugation required

FITS WITHIN EXISTING LABORATORY WORKFLOWS 
high throughput due to automation capacity of standard filter card

LOWER COSTS
less time, energy and resources required

What The Experts Are Saying

“The project of DBS System is innovative and brings a concrete application of the microfluidic technology to the medical field. DBS System platform opens up multiple doors to further integrate high potential innovations for blood sampling and sample preparation, especially with respect to biomedical analysis requirements.”

Prof. Philippe RenaudHead of Microsystems Laboratory 4 of the Swiss Institute of Technology of Lausanne (EPFL)

“We have been using HemaXis over the last year in a variety of tests and always to our full satisfaction. It allows us new possibilities that were unthinkable previously. The time and therefore cost saving it brings to the lab operation is undeniable and most importantly, it does not require extra investments, because it doesn’t disturb the existing and certified workflow.”

Dr. Marc AugsburgerHead of the Unit of Forensic Toxicology CURML – CHUV / HUG

“Dried blood spots technology provides an attractive alternative to conventional venipuncture, the product developed by DBS System allows us to provide an accurate measure of the drug concentration, the possibility to concomitantly obtain dried plasma spot from this technology will unambiguously push child therapeutic drug monitoring forward.”

Prof. Marc Ansari, MD, PDHead of Onco-Hematology Unit Department of Paediatrics Geneva University Hospitals (HUG) and Founder and Director of CANSEARCH Foundation

“DBS System brings an innovative solution solving challenges related to blood collection, their products offer a concrete solution to simplify and standardize the micro-blood collection.”

Prof. Denis HochstrasseHead of Department of Genetic and Laboratory Medicine of the Geneva University Hospitals (HUG)
