Biospecimen collection and preservation cards
Our Specimen Collection Card portfolio offers simple and cost-effective collection, transportation and storage of biosamples at ambient temperature, bringing efficiency and simplicity to the biological fluids sampling process. Ideal for forensics and paternity tests, diagnosis and mapping of infectious diseases, biobanking, biomarkers monitoring, pharmacokinetic, therapeutic drug monitoring, among others, our cards are customizable and can be tailored to fully accommodate our customers needs.
AutoCollect™ - Automated micro-volume samping cards
High quality specimen collection cards designed for laboratory automated equipment. The cassette format of the card with high stiffness provides a suitable fit with main laboratory automated equipment available on the market, allowing reliable DBS card processing, from detection of dried blood spot to the preparation of samples ready for LC/MS analysis. AutoCollect™ cards can successfully be employed in pharmacokinetic and toxicokinetic, drug metabolism, clinical and preclinical studies, human identification, Biomarkers screening and Viral load testing.
BioSamples collection cards
Ahlstrom-Munksjö BioSample collection cards, designed for micro-volume sampling, transport and ambient storage of biological samples, are made of white and pure absorbent filters for reproducible collection and contain no wet-strength additives or chemical, minimizing possible interferences for reliable analytical results. Drying racks are available to facilitate drying of cards at ambient temperature. These cards are suitable for HIV viral load testing, infectious diseases screening including Hepatitis B, C and Syphilis, protein-based dried blood spot analysis, genomics, forensics and human identification.
GenReleaz™ and GenReleaz™ Color - DNA elution cards
Thanks to their features, these cards facilitate rapid elution of nucleic acids and make DNA ready for downstream analyses in less than 30 minutes with a simple elution protocol. GenReleaz™ cards in a white format are recommended for easily identifiable samples, including whole blood. GenReleaz™ cards in a pink format, are useful for clear samples, including urine, saliva and buccal cells. These cards are suitable for a wide range of applications including forensics, molecular diagnostics, human identification, pharmacogenomics, research genotyping, transgenic detection.
GenSaver™ and GenSaver™ Color - Long-term DNA preservation cards
GenSaver™ and GenSaver™ Color specimen collection cards are treated with a new-to-market proprietary chemistry allowing long-term preservation of DNA at ambient temperature. The fiber-based material of these cards is made of pure absorbent fibers, impregnated with a proprietary chemical formulation intended to prevent environmentally induced degradation for long-term ambient preservation of DNA. The cards are suitable for a wide range of applications including human identification genomics, animal identification, plasmid screening, transgenic identification.
