Dried Spot (DS) offers convenient, cost effective sample collection. It also provides a simplified sampling solution to collect blood samples animal-side or on-farm in remote locations where veterinary facilities are not readily available. Only a small volume of blood is required and spotting the sample onto the surface of the collection card or strip is easy. After sample collection, the DS cards and strips are easily dried, packed and shipped to our lab through mail, courier or express mail delivery services. DS samples can be shipped and stored at room temperature.
