Improving T-SPOT.TB test logistics and efficiency
The new T-Cell Select reagent kit allows automated sample preparation and enables the T-SPOT.TB test to be used with blood samples stored for up to 54 hours at room temperature.
Improve logistics and laboratory flexibility
With the T-Cell Select reagent kit, samples for the T-SPOT.TB test can be processed up to 54 hours after collection. That’s over 2 full days from venepuncture until the sample needs to be processed in the laboratory. Samples are shipped at room temperature so there’s no worrying about how to keep them cold. No pre-treatment, specialized tubes, or sample manipulation are required either.
Increased sample stability to 54 hours allows you to:
Ship samples from a greater distance with confidence, expanding the laboratory’s reach
Store late arriving samples overnight to begin processing them on the following day
Have a more flexible workflow with more options for batching samples
Maximise laboratory efficiency
Sample processing for the T-SPOT.TB test can also now be automated for the first time. The T-Cell Select kit contains all necessary reagents for isolating mononuclear immune cells simply and easily via your laboratory’s magnetic bead-based processing system.
