DTwist has developed a unique device for on-the-spot generation of plasma from fingerprick blood.
The plasma can subsequently be applied to any lateral flow test strip or can be collected in a container for further processing and transportation.
The DTwist device is CE marked when used in conjunction with an H-FABP marker
The device integrates
- Whole blood sample transfer from the finger prick location
- Pre-filled buffer container
- Filter to separate blood cells from plasma
- Twisting mechanism to drive buffer and sample through the filter
- Test strip with read-out window
The device can be used as (described in next pages)
1 Single test device for any lateral flow rapid test strip, using plasma as sample type
2 Sample collection device, preparing a plasma sample ready for further processing or transportation
