NOWDiagnostics has recently delivered another revolutionary product – the Direct Collect. With only a drop of fingerstick blood and in just 10 minutes, this unique device separates plasma from blood and yields two separate, high-quality samples that are stable at room-temperature for months. North American collaborators have successfully piloted the Direct Collect for use by their patients to collect blood and plasma samples used for multiple laboratory tests, including genetic sequencing assays. Importantly, the Direct Collect has the potential to dramatically transform laboratory service models. The device is simple enough for lay users to perform and eliminates the need for phlebotomy and expensive, temperature-controlled storage.
NOWDiagnostics continues to develop an incredible pipeline of tests that can be performed at home. For those tests that must be performed in the lab, the Direct Collect is the only sample collection tool that can be used at home to collect volume controlled, high quality, and stable samples.
