About the TAP Touch Activated Phlebotomy ® and TAP Blood Collection Device®
TAP is a proprietary platform that draws capillary blood in a painless, one-step process without having to access a vein, and it can be utilized across and integrated with a broad spectrum of diagnostic applications. The TAP system penetrates the uppermost layers of skin through the use of micro-needles, collects capillary blood using a novel microfluidic extraction process, and stabilizes the blood with anticoagulant if required. The device has a visual indicator to confirm that collection is complete. The TAP platform is designed for fully automated, high throughput manufacturing.
