Dried Spot (DS) Sample Collection involves taking small drops of blood or serum depositing them on a specially manufactured absorbent card where they are allowed to dry. Once dry, DS Collection cards are extremely stable for shipment and storage. Samples can be easily transported by mail or courier for analysis since the blood or serum remains unchanged for several days, even at room temperature. When Dried Spot Collection is used with LC-MS (the gold standard in analytical techniques), customers are ensured the most reliable results to help raise and care for their animals.
Our current lab services test menu requires serum Dried Spot samples for analysis.
