Nobuto Blood Filter Strips are the bloodiest product in Sterlitech?s catalog; get some in time for Halloween sample testing! Made from high-purity cellulose fibers, these strips are structured for uniform sampling. Each strip holds approximately 0.1 mL of blood or 0.04 mL of serum.
Once blood is applied and the strip has dried, researchers can analyze, store, or mail the samples without refrigeration. Studies have shown that these collection devices are easy to use and enable delayed analysis of samples collected in the field. The strips are a valuable resource for the diagnosis and surveillance of avian influenza viruses, Newcastle disease virus (NDV), and West Nile virus (WNV) in wild birds.
Sterlitech offers Nobuto blood filter strips in packs of 100 with plastic drying racks that hold up to 40 strips at one time. In addition to common bird diseases, these strips can be used to test wild animals for a whole host of scary zoonotic pathogens including toxoplasmosis, hantaviruses, measles, plague, and tularemia. The strips can also support environmental studies by enabling researchers to monitor wild animal populations for heavy metals and toxins.
