dried blood spot sampling laboratory automation platform / desktop
for dried blood spot sampling
Online extraction system for LC-MS, MS or Sample Collector coupling
The fully automated DBS-MS 500 from CAMAG is state of the art technology to analyze DBS. The DBS are directly eluted in a designed extraction chamber and guided online to an analysis system. Sample processing is automated, including the application of an internal standard through a high precision sprayer and barcode assignment. In addition to the analysis results, a picture of each DBS card before and after extraction and the run parameters are reported to maintain high traceability and quality.
High throughput analysis of up to 500 DBS cards per run
Integrated optical card recognition and barcode reading module
Automated internal standard application module
Unique extraction module with wash station to eliminate carry-over
Online coupling to analysis system (LC-MS, MS or Sample Collector)
Full control through Chronos software
The fully automated CAMAG DBS-MS extraction system makes DBS analysis remarkably easy and has strong advantages compared to both the manual and semi-automated punching techniques. With the CAMAG DBS-MS 500 extraction procedure DBS analysis is an economical alternative to conventional blood sampling. It represents a time- and cost-saving technique for analyzing pharmacological samples and is less invasive for participants or animals.
