Fully automated Dried Blood Spot (DBS) Extraction System for MS. On-card IS application module for extraction efficiencies and matrix effect correction. Wash station for minimized carry-over effects.

The CAMAG DBS-MS 500 makes DBS analysis remarkably easy and offers an efficient alternative to manual and semi-automated extraction techniques. The robotic sample processor selects the DBS card from the sample trays, reads the identification, and compares it with the expected identity. The next station optionally applies the internal standard allowing for extraction efficiencies and associated matrix effect correction. The card is then transferred to the extraction station, where analytes and internal standard are eluted from the card and passed to the sample loop of the LC–MS. A highly effective extraction unit wash station avoids carry-over and provides utmost reliability. The fully automated DBS-MS 500 extraction system ensures maximum reproducibility through standardized processes and enables considerable time and cost savings.

Key features:

• Fully automated handling of up to 500 DBS cards
• Barcode reading device for card identification
• Automated internal standard application module
• Extraction module independent of LC mobile phase
• Wash station to eliminate carry-over
• Easy coupling with any LC–MS system
