Probe Scientific's MicroEye device:

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

UK firm Probe Scientific says that its minimally-invasive device will allow for continuous blood sampling at a patient's bedside, while avoiding the need for repeated needle punctures. The single-use MicroEye device is designed to sit inside the intravenous catheters that are already fitted to the back of the hand or lower arm of many hospitalised patients to enable medical staff to administer fluids and take blood samples simultaneously. It relies on a semi-permeable membrane being in contact with a patient's biological fluid and, by dialysis, extracting certain key indicator molecules from the fluid for continuous analysis at the bedside. The Bedford-based company plans to initiate the regulatory work to take the product to the US.
