Abstract

Neonatal blood sample screening is recognised as a difficult gesture and painful to the newborns. The number of detected diseases is still relatively low and depends on the country where it is performed. There is a real need for new techniques that reduce pain, facilitate the blood sampling, increase the quantity of sampled blood and improve the collection of blood of the cardboard blotter actually used. In this paper, we present systems that are currently developed in Besançon (France) in collaboration between the FEMTO-ST Institute and the University Hospital. They mainly concern micro-needles arrays and pressure free blood sampling devices. The choice of these systems has been dictated by a study of the pain that newborns feel during the gesture. The ulterior motive of this work is to improve neonatal blood sample screenings and therefore, to increase the number of screened diseases and try to generalise this technique to places where it is not yet done.
