Automation for Dried Blood Spot ( DBS ) Sample Extraction from Cards to LC-MS, without the need punching DBS cards

Automation-for-Dried-Blood-Spot-DBS-Sample-Extraction-from-Cards-to-LC-MS-without-the-need-punching-DBS-cardsThe dried blood spot (DBS) technology coupled to highly sensitive LC-MS/MS systems opens up new ways in bioanalytics both in the healthcare and the pharmaceutical industry. In the healthcare industry, complete measurements are done to diagnose patients to determine the efficacy of administrated drugs or to screen for early detection of diseases. In the pharmaceutical industry, measurements are done during the development process of new drugs (e.g. PK/TK studies, etc.)The major drawback of conventional DBS bioanalytics is the time consuming, error prone and labour intensive nature of manual sample pre-treatment.
