First clinical trial of an automated blood drawing and testing device February 5, 2020 In the future, robots could take blood samples, benefiting patients and healthcare workers alike. A Rutgers-led team has created a blood-sampling robot that performed as well or better than people, according to the first human clinical trial of an automated blood drawing and testing device. The device provides quick results and would allow healthcare professionals to spend more time treating patients in hospitals and other settings.
