Self-collection kit for blood

The future of scalable sample collection

Reliable self-collected blood samples take multi-omics research everywhere. Remote sampling with >90% success rate. Both kit and analysis starting from just €59.

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 €59.

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)

How does it work?


Research study organizer orders agreed number of Nightingale Kits


Nightingale Health delivers kits in one batch to study organizer who registers the kit IDs


Study organizer delivers the kits to study participants with mail or courier logistics


Study participants receive the kits, draw the sample and return the kit to study organizer (7 days return window)


Study organizer pools the blood collection kits with collected samples in freezer


Study organizer delivers the blood collection kits to Nightingale Health for analysis and Nightingale return the results* to study organizer

*Nightingale Biomarker Profile, HbA1c (optional), Genetic data generation (optional)
