The first step in an accurate diagnosis is sample collection. POREX® collection media offers ideal capillary structure for sample collection with customization in wicking and absorption properties for controlled delivery of samples. A proprietary color change technology allows for methodology assurance. Collection media is optimized to enhance surface energy and increase recovery of analytes, reduce viscosity and minimize non-specific binding, thus reducing potential contamination.
