We Might Be Looking At Needle-Free Blood Tests In The Future With “The Hemolink!”

Rejoice, needle phobics of the world! The future is now less scary as a Wisconsin start-up, Tasso Inc, has come up with a needle-free way of drawing blood for test.

Behold, the Hemolink! This clever little device utilizes micro-fluid properties and use a vacuum-like process to draw blood from below the skin without having to puncture it or use any kind of needle. Uhuh, no needles!

The device can also give you the option to post your blood sample to be tested. An excellent news for those who dislike doctors almost as much as needles.
