Dried Blood Spots – A Preferred Sample Type for Blood Biomarkers

Blood samples have always been frozen and in liquid form in modern medicine. But now, our new study challenges conventional thoughts regarding blood-storage by showing an alternative sample type; dried blood spots. The dried blood spots shows greatly increased analytic capabilities, as well as major economic benefits because of the easier storage method. It’s highly possible that the dried samples can ease medicinal efforts in developing countries, by bringing cheaper, simpler, and more advanced diagnostic methods to people who are struggling to receive a diagnosis and the aid that they desperately need. We hope to show the medical world that more research needs to be done surrounding dried bloods sports, as it shows great promise thus far.
