Dried Blood Spots (DBS)

EUROIMMUN’s product portfolio is complemented by PerkinElmer accessories to enable fully automated processing of serological tests based on dried blood spots (DBS) as sample material. Capillary blood is collected from the fingertip and applied onto barcoded blood collection cards for complete traceability of samples throughout the entire process. There are various automation solutions available, both for punching out the DBS (e.g. PerkinElmer DBS Puncher® or Panthera-Puncher™ 9) and automated test processing that is suitable for every laboratory size and sample throughput.

For example, the analysis of DBS extracts with EUROIMMUN ELISAs can be performed in the EUROLabWorkstation ELISA, the EUROIMMUN Analyzer I, or the Sprinter XL. For automated processing of immunoblot strips, the EUROBlotMaster and EUROBlotOne instruments are available. Communications with the LIS is established either directly via the respective instrument software, or conveniently via the EUROLabOffice middleware, which allows automated consolidation and data processing.

  • Complete traceability from the barcoded sample card to the final result
  • Flexible and scalable automation solutions for every laboratory size and sample throughput
  • Clear result overview including documentation and archiving of all relevant patient information by the optional middleware EUROLabOffice
