Innovac II Capillary Blood Collection System

The Innovac® II capillary blood collection system can significantly reduce re-sticks due to clotted or hemolyzed samples. The Quick-Draw® adapter fits your current capillary collection container so that it can be used with the Innovac® II vacuum unit. The vacuum action draws the sample into the collection vial, eliminating the need to scoop, which can cause hemolysis. Less squeezing is needed because the vacuum will collect even the smallest drops. During collection, air being pulled through the vial causes the sample to mix automatically with the anticoagulant in the vial, eliminating the need to stop and mix the sample during collection. An application for newborn and dried blood spot screening samples is also available.

Inverness Medical


C. DIFF QUIK CHEK COMPLETE®

The new C. DIFF QUIK CHEK COMPLETE® test offered by Inverness Medical is the only device that simultaneously detects both C. difficile glutamate dehydrogenase (GDH) and C. difficile toxins A and B in one simple assay. It can be used for screening while also confirming the presence of toxigenic C. difficile strains. Results in less than 30 minutes enable rapid diagnosis, a more complete picture of the patient’s disease state, and quicker initiation of appropriate patient management. The test provides an accurate and cost-effective method of excluding > 90% of fecal samples from further testing with a negative predictive value of 99%. Developed and manufactured by TECHLAB.

Lampire Biological Laboratories


Llama Antibodies

In addition to the standard two-chain IgG, llamas produce a heavy, single-chain IgG. The llama IgG molecule has a lower molecular weight than standard IgG and has a smaller binding domain, but it binds its targets with equal strength. Furthermore, the smaller size and binding area suggest these antibodies may perform better as neutralizing antibodies and may be more effective at binding haptens. The simple structure contributes to stability, as llama IgG has been shown to bind antigen at >90°C and to refold after being denatured. Lampire provides custom llama polyclonal antibody development and also offers anti-llama IgG secondary antibodies.
