Sample Collection

An accurate diagnosis starts with the collection of a sample.

Deliver a more accurate diagnosis with controlled sample collection

An accurate diagnosis starts with the collection of a sample. Our collection media offer ideal capillary structures with customization for wicking, absorption and flow – critical properties for increased test speed and the controlled delivery of biologic samples.

With proprietary color change and sufficiency-indicator technology, our collection media are optimized to enhance surface energy and recovery of analytes, to reduce viscosity and to minimize non-specific binding and a comprehensive selection of material from a single-source manufacturer.
