Preanalytics

Our preanalytical products are intended for use in research and development as well as in quality control departments. They are mainly used for study schemes regarding the influence of various anticoagulants and interfering substances on the results of laboratory tests or on biomarkers. All samples are taken under identical conditions and donated by the identical donor during a single donation.

The generation of the test results is divided into a pre-analytical and an analytical phase. The pre-analytical phase includes all influences that act before the measurement process. The analytical phase includes purely methodological and metrological conditions.

We offer you the following pre-analytical influencing factors:

1. Choice of Cohorts

  • age, gender, lifestyle habits
  • taking medication and supplements
  • sample material from healthy or currently ill donors
  • previous illnesses, allergies etc.
  • ethnic background of donors

2. Preperation of Donors

  • previous diet (a certain number of hours without food or without high-fat food)
  • physical stimulation of the blood circulation
  • positioning of the donor during the donation (upright, sitting, lying)

3. Processing of Samples

  • speed
  • temperature
  • time of duration of centrifugation
  • use of anticoagulants

4. Storage of Samples

  • storage of donation material at room temperature up to use of liquid nitrogen
  • transport with dry ice etc.
