ABS2 Automated Blood Sampler

Instech's ABS2™ automates the collection of blood samples from laboratory animals. By eliminating labor-intensive manual withdrawals it can streamline DMPK research. It can also reduce the stress on animals caused by handling.

The sampler withdraws blood from a tethered freely-moving animal according to your programmed schedule, stores the samples in an integrated refrigerated fraction collector, and replaces the withdrawn volumes with IV fluid. You control and monitor sampling schedules, volumes and withdrawal rates for up to twelve animals from a central computer.

Unique advantages of the Instech blood sampling system include:

 

  • Undiluted samples, verified by in-line sensors
  • A short collection path, to minimize mixing and collection times
  • Less than 5 µL of blood wasted per sample, to minimize hemodilution
  • The flexibility to work with a range of species, from mice and rats to large animals

 

The ABS2, Instech's second-generation sampler, builds on the proven foundation of a series of precision peristaltic pumps to move blood and IV fluids directly to their destinations. The fraction collector has been redesigned from the ground up for additional features and high reliability.

The ABS2 not only works with refrigerated vials, but also can deposit 10-25µL samples directly onto dried blood spot paper. The dried blood spot technique offers several advantages over traditional sampling, including very small sample volumes, streamlined processing and room temperature storage. Instech's DBS disks feature Whatman FTA® DMPK paper.
