The versatility of the TruStrip™ STS technology opens the gateway for a wide range of applications that involve quantitative collection and recovery of samples. TruStrip™ strips are pre-calibrated to hold specific amount of liquid samples without the need for any measurement device. Coupled with the ease of quantitatively recovering the samples, TruStrip™ strips essentially eliminates the limitations imposed by conventional sample collection methods that require collection tubes, transfer devices such as pipettes, and issues related to storage and transportation of samples. The application examples provided below are just a small sample of what can be accomplished with the TruStrip™ STS technology.
