New publication KKGT section

15-12-2022 - The KKGT section has a new publication: "Results from a proficiency testing pilot for immunosuppressant microsampling assays".

This publication describes the results of 3 rounds of immunosuppressant microsampling proficiency testing. Microsamples are blood sampling devices that only require 1 or 2 drops of blood from a fingerprick. There arevarious devices available such as Whatman 903, Whatman DMPK-C, HemaXis and Mitra tips. In this study, these various devices were compared in addition to regular whole blood to measure immunosuppressive drugs. These drugs are used by solid organ transplantpatients to prevent allograft rejection. It is very important that patient blood levels of immunosuppressants are within therapeutic range to prevent both rejection and toxicity.
