A Study to Compare the Finger Prick Whole Blood MITRA Assay Method With the Established Venepuncture Whole Blood Method for Quantitative Determination of Tacrolimus Blood Concentrations in Transplant Patients


Brief description of study

The purpose of this study is to assess relationship between tacrolimus concentrations determined via whole blood MITRA assay method with those determined using the established and validated whole blood venepuncture method using samples taken from liver and kidney transplant participants.

Detailed Study Description

This will be a bioanalytical assay method cross-validation study using blood samples donated by liver or kidney transplant participants. Participants will have been on a stable dose of Advagraf and deemed clinically stable for a period of 3-6 months and attend a routine out-patient follow-up visit to receive their usual oral dose of commercial Advagraf. Participants will be asked to provide 1 whole blood venepuncture sample and 1 whole blood finger prick MITRA sample at pre-dose and at approximately 1 and 3 hours post-dose. Participants will be kept at the study site for an extra 1 hour to ensure post-sampling safety and will be discharged thereafter.
