The ViveBio Scientific DriVive™™ is a unique device designed to improve the ease with which biological (blood) specimens are collected, stored, transported, and assayed; especially is resource challenged settings. What distinguished this device from other dried sample collection products is its ability to separate erythrocytes from plasma via vertical flow; thus, leaving collected, purified plasma in an easily transported and assayed matrix. Studies here show how this device can be used for monitoring nutritional and inflammatory biomarkers such as AGP, CRP, Ferritin, RBP4, and Thyroglobulin.

The ViveBio Scientific DriVive™ ™ blood collection device is unique in its ability to separate blood components during collection; thus, providing purified plasma for testing. Additionally, the collected specimen can be dried for easy storage and transportation, which can be extremely beneficial when collecting biological specimens in resource poor settings. Hear, time and temperature stability studies were performed to assess the device’s ability to stabilize a range of different nutritional and inflammatory biomarkers. In addition a goal of the study was to establish an LC-MS/MS method for measuring 25OH-Vitamin D3, Retinol, and Methylmalonic acid in the dried spots collected from the DriVive™™.

21st Internationl Congress of Nutrition, October 15-20, 2017, Buenos Aires, Argentina
Dry matrix spots (DMS) are dried spots of bodily fluids such as blood, serum, and urine. These have been used for many years for specimen collection in remote areas of the world. The goal of this study was to compare different methods of blood collection devices (BCDs) and identify those that could isolate purified plasma from whole blood for downstream nutritional biomarker (NB) testing.

Dry Matrix Spots (DMS) are dried spots of body fluids, including blood, serum, urine, saliva and breast milk. DMS have been employed as a convenient sample matrix to collect in non-clinical and remote settings.
