Samplla Technology

Technology

Samplla™, a family of specimen collection devices which are designed to provide ambient transportation for up to 21 days.  Unlike dried blood spot (DBS), specimens applied to Samplla™ are immediately “dried and stabilized” within a local atmospheric condition using its Samplla Modified Atmosphere Packaging (sMAP), that provides an atmosphere separated from the ambient atmosphere and resistant to gas exchange – the result, stability. 

Performance

The Samplla™ System is a revolutionary new logistical solution for transporting biological fluids without cold-chain logistics.  Samplla™ is suitable for a wide range of specimen types including serum, plasma, whole blood, urine, or cavity fluid and maintaining specimen integrity at ambient temperature for up to 21 days and 50°C, see table below.

Samplla™ provides:

  • 21-day stability at ambient temperatures
  • high degree of analytical sensitivity down to pmol concentration
  • negligible impact to overall precision (3%)
  • correlates well with neat serum
Key Components & Process

 

Specimen is applied to a custom made device containing two wells.  Specimen does not have to be applied with precision – the device auto regulates volume.  Air drying is not required with on-board desiccant.

The device is inserted while it's wet into a foil envelope that develops a special atmosphere stabilizing test components.

 

The entire assembly is inserted into a special mailer (sMAP) that maintains the integrity of the package for transit via common carrier, including international.  Once received by the lab, the media is removed, and specimen is extracted and run as usual.
