Product category: Diagnostic rapid tests

Fiber-based materials for Rapid Diagnostic Tests

Ahlstrom-Munksjö offers a wide variety of high quality absorbent filtration media designed for use in flow-though and lateral flow and dipstick devices. Our customizable next-generation absorbent, conjugate and sample pads, as well as plasma separation media, are specifically designed to provide improved consistency and high reliability in performance, reducing production time, resources required and cost of chemicals.

Sample Pad/Blood Separator
We offer a wide range of fibers composition to provide wide compatibility and efficient filtration of samples. Our sample pads ensure consistent absorbency and good wicking rate to reach an uniform distribution of the sample onto the conjugate pad.
Our CytoSep® plasma separation pads are designed to quickly separate diverse volumes of whole blood without hemolysis to achieve increased line sensitivity.

Conjugate Release Pad
Our conjugate pads have been developed for reproducible and high level of conjugate release. Their good uniformity leads to improved coefficient of variability and high performance consistency between assays.  Moreover, our materials exhibit reinforced mechanical properties for easy reel to reel treatment.

Absorbent Pad
Ahlstrom-Munksjö cotton based absorbent pads offer consistent absorbency for test to test reproducibility. Our product made of a mix of cotton and glass fibers allows to quickly clear the membrane by absorbing higher volumes of liquid and get access to the read in a shorter time.

Cards for Collection and Preservation of Biosamples

Our Specimen Collection Card portfolio offers simple and cost-effective collection, transportation and storage of biosamples at ambient temperature, bringing efficiency and simplicity to the biological fluids sampling process. Ideal for forensics and paternity tests, diagnosis and mapping of infectious diseases, biobanking, biomarkers monitoring, pharmacokinetic, therapeutic drug monitoring, among others, our cards are customizable and can be tailored to fully accommodate our customers’ needs.

Automated micro-volume samping cards
AutoCollect™ cards are designed for micro-volume sampling, transport and storage of dried blood spot (DBS) at ambient temperature. The cassette format of the card with high stiffness provides a suitable fit with main laboratory automated equipment available on the market, allowing reliable DBS card processing, from detection of dried blood spot to the preparation of samples ready for LC/MS analysis.

Biosamples collection cards
Ahlstrom-Munksjö BioSample collection cards are made of white and pure absorbent filters for reproducible collection and contain no wet-strength additives or chemical, minimizing possible interferences for reliable analytical results.

DNA elution cards
Thanks to their features, GenReleaz™ and GenReleaz™ Color specimen collection cards facilitate rapid elution of nucleic acids and make DNA ready for downstream analyses in less than 30 minutes with a simple elution protocol.

Long-term DNA preservation cards
GenSaver™ and GenSaver™ Color cards are designed for the collection, transport and storage at ambient temperature of DNA from biological fluids. The fiber-based material of these cards is made of pure absorbent fibers, impregnated with a proprietary chemical formulation intended to prevent environmentally induced degradation for long-term ambient preservation of DNA.
