BD MiniDraw™ Collection System is a novel device that collects lab-quality blood samples from the patient fingertip, without the need for phlebotomy. The FDA 510(k) cleared system is less-invasive than venous collection methods, using only one-tenth the volume required for a traditional venous draw, and can be used in new settings, like retail pharmacies. By expanding access to less-invasive collection methods, the BD MiniDraw™ Collection System has the potential to transform blood collection for diagnostic testing.
Clinically equivalent results to traditional venous methods for 16 analytes1
The BD MiniDraw™ Collection System has demonstrated clinical equivalence to venous samples for 16 analytes, including a lipid panel, selected chemistry tests, and hemoglobin and hematocrit (H&H) testing.2 These are among the most commonly ordered laboratory tests and can be used to diagnose and monitor a variety of chronic conditions from hypertension to high cholesterol.
Expanded access to blood collection
Designed to be used by healthcare workers with or without phlebotomy training in non-traditional settings like retail pharmacies and clinics, the BD MiniDraw™ Collection System allows patients the option of getting blood drawn in locations that may be more accessible to them.
The BD MiniDraw™ Collection System is less invasive than traditional venipuncture, and may be preferred by patients, especially those with difficult veins or a needle phobia.4
Standardized collection of low-volume samples5
The BD MiniDraw™ Collection System is proven to consistently collect high-quality microsamples of capillary blood from the patient fingertip, with lower rates of hemolysis versus conventional capillary collection methods.6
