How to Increase Urine & Saliva Test Accuracy with Porous Polymers
Feb. 16, 2021
11:00 am ET
In this webinar, engineers working on in-vitro diagnostic tests can learn how the materials used in front-end sample collection can impact the accuracy of the test results. Inaccurate test results due to poor design and material choice can have devastating consequences for the consumer and the test’s overall brand image. Learn how many challenges with test accuracy can be solved by the material used in sample collection – including absorption rate and uniformity, sample contaminates, quality variation, and how the material fits within the device. Take a tour of how porous polymer materials are used today for urine and saliva sample collection, and how they compare with other materials such as cellulose, glass fiber and other woven materials.
When you attend this webinar, you will:
- Understand the science behind front-end sample collection for urine and saliva tests
- Learn how test accuracy is impacted by material selection
- Take a tour of various materials used in sample collection
- Learn what questions to ask in order to find the right sample collection material for your IVD test
