TAP Blood Collection Device Receives CE Mark

MEDFORD, Mass., March 29, 2018 -- (Healthcare Sales & Marketing Network) -- Seventh Sense Biosystems (7SBio) announced today that TAP, the company's painless, one-step blood collection device, has received a CE Mark. This enables the company to begin commercialization in Europe. The device uses tiny microneedles to collect blood painlessly, quickly and conveniently. TAP received U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) 510(k) clearance last year.

"Much like the US, Europe is seeing a dramatic shift to more decentralized healthcare delivery," said Harry W Wilcox, CEO of 7SBio. "Healthcare providers want more convenient, lower cost methods of blood collection to perform lab testing. We're thrilled to now be able to offer TAP in Europe too."

The CE Mark enables blood to be collected painlessly and quickly for transport back to a lab.
