VDI Laboratory, LLC, is a specialty diagnostics laboratory service provider dedicated to the introduction of innovative biomarkers for companion animals. VDI offers veterinarians testing for cancer, osteoarthritis, inflammation, essential vitamin deficiency, and more all through a unique dried specimen technology called Samplla™. With Samplla™, VDI is now able to serve the worldwide companion animal marketplace.
- Technical Challenge
VDI’s cancer panel utilizes thymidine kinase, type 1 (TK1). TK1, an enzyme, is heat liable needing frozen sample transport. With Samplla™, VDI was able to maintain stability for three weeks at ambient temperature. Samplla™ essentially “stopped time”.
Cross Border Shipments
In addition to the U.S. including hot environments like summertime in Phoenix, Arizona and cold winter in Boston Massachusetts, VDI is receiving specimens using Samplla™ from international locations including, Australia, Canada and South Korea.
"Samplla™ technology opened our international business. Other dried technology tested was unable to stabilize TK1. Receiving international mail on a daily basis is simple and amazing - we love it".
Kyle Wilson, VDI Laboratory | Marketing Manager
- Saving Courier Costs
Courier and overnight shipping is expensive. Cool packs and Styrofoam containers were a logistics burden. VDI was able to eliminate both and enjoy simple, easy to use and cost-effective specimen shipments.
"Samplla™ technology completely changed our operation. Not only we were able to cut our highest operational expense by 80%, our fulfillment process became easy and smooth - I can't see how we did it without Samplla™".
