DTwist can be fitted with any lateral flow test strip, using plasma as sample type

The device has been tested in 1700 patients at high risk of Acute Myocardial Infarction in an Emergency Department in the UK, and shown to be reliable, robust and usable by non-expert users, making it ideal for decentralised blood sampling and testing.

Elements that can be varied to optimize for any individual testing solution:

  • sponge size (volume of whole blood to be absorbed)
  • running buffer composition (including e.g. preservatives/anticoagulants)
  • buffer filling volume
  • buffer extraction volume
