Dried blood spot technology for Health and Wellness
About the webinar
Biological samples collected and stored in biobanks are a significant data resource with significant research potential for finding markers used in the early detection of diseases that are still curable. Today, test tubes with large volumes of blood or plasma are kept in energy-consuming freezers.
The use of Dried Blood Spot offers a novel approach to biosamples storage. DBS is a simple, convenient, cost-effective alternative for collecting biological samples and keeping them stored at ambient temperature over time.
It also represents an ideal resource for extensive biobanking population studies of patients in areas that lack appropriate infrastructure for processing blood and a cold chain for the transportation and storage of blood products.
