Dried Blood Spots (DBS)

EUROIMMUN’s product portfolio, ideally complemented by highly sophisticated PerkinElmer instruments, enables fully automated processing of serological tests based on dried blood spots (DBS) as sample material. Capillary blood, collected from the fingertip, is applied onto barcoded blood collection cards which allow complete traceability of the sample over 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, which are 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 or the Sprinter XL. For automated processing of immunoblot strips, the EUROBlotMaster and EUROBlotOne instruments are available. The communication with the LIS is established either directly via the respective instrument software, or conveniently via the EUROLabOffice middleware, which allows optimal channelling and display of all information.

  • 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
