Dried Blood Spot Analysis (DBS)
Algorithme Pharma has added Dried Blood Spot (DBS) Analysis to its bioanalysis services. DBS is gaining recognition as a superior alternative to traditional plasma collection in many research applications because it eliminates many costly, time-consuming and unpleasant aspects of sample collection while returning excellent analytical results. By using DBS, sample collection and processing is simplified, resulting in lower collection volumes, lower sample transportation costs and easier sample storage requirements. It is also safer to handle.
These are all excellent reasons to choose Dried Blood Spot analysis whenever possible for all your preclinical and clinical needs. We are prepared to use our experience with this technique to develop a robust and reliable method for your study. Research performed by the Method Development group has proven that methods using Dried Blood Spots are just as reliable as methods using traditional matrices.
