Application Note: Theberge Lab case study using Tasso technology to research unpredictable events in real time
23 November 2023
Many research questions cannot be studied under controlled circumstances. Events like natural disasters or disease exposure often occur without warning and prevent in-person clinic visits, making timely observation difficult without a flexible approach. At the University of Washington, Dr. Ashleigh Theberge and her research team partnered with Tasso to study these scenarios by deploying on-demand remote testing. In this case study, discover how the Theberge Lab used Tasso blood collection devices to successfully collect blood samples from study participants exposed to wildfire smoke in multiple states. By deploying this flexible method and adopting a decentralized approach, Tasso’s technology made remote blood collection not only simple and accurate, but also virtually painless.
