Blood Separation Pad
(Serum Separation Pad)
Blood Separation membrane describes a simple, cost-effective and practical pad and metering system that is well suited for use in traditional lateral flow strips. The sample size of the blood for the described metering system is usually at 1-5 μl. The design and development of this metering tool stems from existing lateral flow technology, and it can be produced extensively by similar lateral flow fabrication processes.
This metering system provides an interesting option to overcome technical challenges that currently limit the expansion of lateral flow technology in quantitative diagnostic applications with optional flow testing and red blood cell separation capabilities.
Fast wick: Rapid flow-rate allowing faster assays
No visible haemolysis
Uniformity: Strong in-process control for blend, environment and thickness allows consistent performance
High-purity material: Near- universal chemical compatibility
Pre-treated options: Suitable for higher volume of blood
