Nightingale self-collection kit for medical research and clinical trials
We offer comprehensive biomarker profiling from self-collected blood samples.
Our end-to-end solution for participant friendly remote sampling
Geographical and logistic limitations constrain many study designs. These limitations cause challenges in attracting participants, limit possibilities in sample collection, and create substantial costs. Our remote blood sample collection solution, where participants can draw their own sample from a fingerprick, creates substantial flexibility allowing study designs that have not been possible before while keeping costs under control.
Unprecedented value from integrated remote sampling and Nightingale Health's blood analysis technology
The Nightingale Kit lets participants collect their own blood sample for biomarker profiling from a finger prick. We have developed the technology in-house to both collect samples and measure biomarkers, so we can:
- optimize the quality of data from self-collected samples,
- improve participant experience,
- enable flexible study design, and
- reduce costs.
Nightingale Kit with blood analysis provides reliable sampling and high data quality
Nightingale Kit tightly integrates to Nightingale Health’s blood analysis platform. This means we get successful biomarker analysis from >90% of returned samples, and maintain < 10% CV on nearly all measured biomarkers, half with CV < 5%.
Competitive pricing compared to venous sampling
Nightingale Kit simplifies the sample collection workflow by removing the complex coordination needed to acquire venous samples. This increases flexibility, allowing a price point where remote collection costs are similar to or even lower than venous samples.
Price for kit plus blood biomarker profiling starts at €55.
Biomarkers from Nightingale Kit cover a wide range of biological functions
- Standard lipid panel (LDL, HDL, triglycerides)
- Detailed lipids (e.g., ApoA1 & ApoB)
- Insulin sensitivity (amino acids)
- Dietary intake (e.g., Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids)
- Chronic inflammation (GlycA)
- Fluid balance (e.g., albumin)
- Kidney function (e.g., creatinine)
- Long term blood sugar via HbA1C (optional extra)
- DNA extraction and genetic data (optional extra)
