Q² Solutions and Tasso Collaborate to Provide Unique Solutions for Patients to Accelerate Adoption of Decentralized Clinical Trials
“The current COVID-19 pandemic has created a surge in demand for more virtual clinical trials and remote patient monitoring applications,” said
Tasso’s devices enable patients to collect their own blood samples for analysis without any training or the need to travel to a physician’s office, hospital, or other clinical site – reducing the burden of participating in a clinical trial. The devices are currently in use by leading pharmaceutical companies across multiple clinical trials for their research and development efforts.
“We are delighted to collaborate with Tasso on this innovative, patient-centric approach to blood collection for decentralized clinical trials,” said Brian O’Dwyer, CEO of Q2 Solutions. “Prior to formalizing the agreement, we completed a pilot study of traditional methods of drawing blood using needle injections directly into veins compared with capillary blood draws, which are closer to the surface of the skin, and easier to complete using the innovative Tasso devices. We were able to consistently capture large capillary blood volumes that closely matched amounts from the same participants versus standard methods.”
