Dried blood spot analysis patent published

Spark Holland : 19 February, 2014  (New Product)
Spark Holland has succeeded in publishing a patent in the USA for dried blood spot preparation and testing methods and equipment
Dried blood spot analysis patent published


Spark Holland announces the publication of US patent no US 8586382 B2 which relates to a method and an apparatus for desorption of a blood sample from a medical test sheet comprising at least one dried blood spot (DBS) for the purpose of biomedical analysis of the blood sample. The patent allows that the new method eliminates the need for first punching out a disc area of the test sheet containing dried blood sample, thus speeding up the procedure considerably and that on-line desorption of dried blood spots is faster and easier and allows for further automation of the process.



This new technique – Spark’s innovative Flow-through desorption (FTD) technology, forms the basis of its revolutionary new DBS Autosampler for the preparation of dried blood spots, or other biological liquid samples, e.g. urine, on DBS cards for analysis by mass spec or other analytical techniques without any manual intervention.



Rob van der Knaap, President Spark Holland BV, commented, “The granting of this patent confirms yet again the innovation and technological achievements of Spark. Our aim is to always lead the way in automated front-end sample preparation. Our patented Flow-through desorption technology now offers an advantage over other systems and offers possibilities for speeding up and complete automation of analysis in the clinical and drug discovery laboratory. We plan to showcase our revolutionary DBS Autosampler at all major exhibitions this year and look forward to working with OEM, existing and new partners in the clinical and pharmaceutical areas.”
