Although not everyone deals with needles and the moment they break through our skin in quite the same way, the truth is it can be very uncomfortable, to the point of causing anxiety and dizziness in some people. Luckily, we have good news for anyone afraid of needles, because they have finally invented a system to draw blood without using them.
Hemolink is a device created by American company Tasso Inc.; it is round, 10cm long, and users can place it over their skin on the arm or abdomen, where it draws blood without sticking anything into the skin. How does it work? The secret lies in microfluidics technology.
Obviously this is a tremendous step forward, not only because it does without needles, loathed by many patients, but most importantly because it frees medical centers from long queues and unnecessary waits, as patients receive Hemolink in their mailbox and then send the blood directly to the lab.
