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
