Unique advantages of the ABS2 blood sampling system include:

  • Undiluted samples, verified by in-line sensors
  • A short collection path, to minimize mixing and collection times
  • Less than five µL of blood wasted per sample, to minimize hemodilution
  • The flexibility to work with a range of species, from mice and rats to large animals

This second-generation autosampler builds on the proven foundation of a series of precision peristaltic pumps to move blood and IV fluids directly to their destinations. The fraction collector has been redesigned from the ground up for additional features and high reliability.

The ABS2 not only works with refrigerated vials (such as Sarstedt Microvette tubes), but also can deposit 10-25µL microsamples directly onto dried blood spot paper.
