Nobuto Blood Filter Strips are the latest addition to Sterlitech’s growing line of microbiology and life science products. Made from high-purity cellulose fibers, which gives them a structure ideal for uniform sampling, each strip holds approximately 0.1 mL of blood or 0.04 mL of serum. Once the blood strip has dried, researchers can analyze, store, or mail the samples without refrigeration.
“Nobuto blood filter strips are a valuable resource for tracking diseases within wild animal populations,” states Mark Spatz, president of Sterlitech. “Studies have indicated that these collection devices are easy to use and enable delayed analysis when samples are collected in the field. In past studies, they have been used to track Avian Influenza and West Nile Virus in wild birds.”
Sterlitech offers Nobuto blood filter strips in packs of 100 and plastic drying racks which can hold 40 of the strips at one time. In addition to screening for avian Influenza and West Nile virus, they are also used to test for toxoplasmosis, hantaviruses, measles, plague, tularemia, and heavy metal contamination.
