Microsampling Device MSW2 TM Type Udck TM

Introduction of a quantitative microsampling device
Microsampling Wing × Microsampling Windmill

The MSW2 series offer tools for easily fractionating a predetermined amount of plasma from a small amount of blood, for nonclinical animal experiments.
The MSW2 is designed based on the principles of the 3Rs (Replacement, Reduction and Refinement) to minimize the burden to animals.
Also, since the entire process, from sampling to fractionation of a predetermined amount of plasma, can be completed with devices only, so human errors are minimized.
The MSW2 consists of the Microsampling Wing blood sampling device, and the Microsampling Windmill, a specialized holder that allows for efficient use of the Microsampling Wing.



  • Easy microsampling
    Procedures from sampling to quantitative fractionation are possible without any high-level training.
  • Reduce microsampling process
    Since Microsampling Wing has a high solvent resistance, re-measurement is not required before
    deproteination and other processes subsequent to quantitative fractionation.
  • Enhanced productivity
    A Microsampling Windmill simultaneously centrifuges and puts up to 14 Microsampling Wings.


■ Microsampling Wing

  • Sampling by capillary force
  • EDTA-2Na coated
  • No necessary seal during centrifugation
  • Chip(s) which has extact volume can be snapped off with fingertips
Microsampling Wing TM

■ Microsampling Windmill / Centrifuge Tube

  • Holds up to 14 Microsampling Wings at a time
  • The Microsampling Windmill with the microsampling Wings can be centrifuged* and stored
  • Can be stacked
  • Alternatively centrifuge tubes for single sample preperation
  • *A specialized centrifuge rotor is required.
