US BioTek utilizes different testing processes to provide one panel with the ability to utilize different collection methods.

The Nucleic Acid Amplified Test Polymerase Chain Reaction (NAAT PCR) is run on every panel regardless of blood collection type. Nucleic Acid Amplified Tests enable sensitive detection of low-density viral and parasitic infections through the amplification of specific DNA or RNA sequences providing options for both qualitative and quantitative results

 

Serum Collections

Serum samples utilize the Enhanced Chemiluminescence Immunoassay (CLA) technology provides lower detection limits with a wide dynamic measuring range.

 

Dried Blood Spot Collections

Dried Blood Spot samples utilize the Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay (ELISA) technology which is an established immunological technique widely used to detect the presence of specific antibodies or antigens in the blood.
