Ahlstrom-Munksjö AutoCollectTM specimen collection cards for high-throughput environments work efficiently in both DBS punch and direct elution.

They are designed for microvolume sampling, transport and storage of dried blood spot (DBS) at ambient temperature.

The cassette format of the card with high stiffness provides a suitable fit with main laboratory automated equipment available on the market, allowing reliable DBS card processing, from detection of dried blood spot to the preparation of samples ready for LC/MS analysis.

The standard AutoCollectTM and AutoCollectTM Color cards are suitable for short-term storage (about 2 years). We also offer AutoCollectTM cards in GenSaverTM 2.0 (AutoCollectTM GS) and GenReleazTM (AutoCollectTM GR) formats for increased performance and features.
