DRY SPOT diagnostics - minimizing the tripping hazards
Dry Spot Diagnostic The quality of any kind of laboratory test, whatever assay technology is used, strongly depends on sample history, i.e. the way the sample is collected, stabilized, shipped to the laboratory, and stored. If shipping takes too much time or ambient temperature is too high, sensitive analytes will decompose by either chemical/enzymatic reactions or by fast growing micro organisms and any medical or scientific examination will yield unreliable and false results. This is the basic message of the Dry Spot concept: Most chemical reactions and all microbes need an aqueous environment to be able to destroy analytes. Our device allows the easy removal of water from almost any biological fluid (urine, saliva and blood etc.) followed by shipment to the laboratory by normal mail at ambient temperatures. There the samples are re-hydrated and determined like normal patient or research samples using custom-made Dry Spot immunoassays and protocols. Please inquire!
