Telimmune Cards

Simple, Rapid, Reproducible Collection of Plasma

Shimadzu has partnered with Telimmune (formally Novilytic) to offer a powerful new technology for the rapid generation of plasma from whole blood.

The Telimmune Plasma Separation Card is a high-precision volumetric plasma collection device for use by medical professionals.

Unlike common blood vials and blood spot cards, it efficiently separates plasma and supplies a very accurate volumetric sample ready for analytical analysis.

The Telimmune Plasma Prep Cards now come in two formats - the original Telimmune Plasma Prep Cards and the Telimmune Duo Plasma Prep Cards.

The Telimmune technology collects a ~3 μL aliquot of plasma from ≥ 25 μL of whole blood in three minutes and stabilizes for shipping in just 15 minutes.

Principal applications include but are not limited to population-based research, global clinical trials, neonatal screening for congenital disorders, toxicokinetic/pharmacokinetic studies, therapeutic drug monitoring, and healthcare accessibility initiatives in the developing world.

Properties of the Telimmune Card:

  • 99% removal of red blood cells (based on Hb levels in plasma).
  • Plasma sampling volumes of 3 µL (6 µL DUO).
  • Inter-card CV of ~1% (~3% DUO) in plasma collection volume at constant hematocrit (HCT).
  • Inter-card CV of 2% collection volume variation with 20% to 71% HCT
  • Proteins are deposited as a monolayer upon drying.
  • Metabolites are present in the protein monolayer.

Significant advantages of Telimmune Card technology include:

  • Rapid sample preparation for MS-based analysis, while maintaining assay reproducibility and selectivity.
  • Volumetric plasma sample collection using a single drop of whole blood.
  • Specimen volumes as low as 25 µL.
  • Telimmune cards simplify sample preparation. Eliminates need for solvent extraction, centrifugation and evaporation.
  • Exceptional reproducibility independent of hematocrit.
