DESCRIPTION

The new Plasma Separation Card is a stable and easy-to-use sample collection device for HIV plasma viral load. By providing a small amount of a patient's blood from a fingertip, this specially designed card stabilizes dried plasma/viral RNA under extreme heat and humidity. Simply spot a small amount of blood on the card and transport to a lab where HIV diagnostic tests can be performed. The innovative card separates plasma from whole blood and may be transported for a period of 28 days at 18-45°C and up to 85% humidity before being analyzed.
