Title: SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR COLLECTING AND PRESERVING BLOOD SAMPLES FOR SUBSEQUENT ANTIBODY-INDEPENDENT IMAGING
Abstract:
A method is provided for preserving blood samples for subsequent antibody-independent imaging, which includes transferring a blood sample to a fixative and red blood cell (RBC) lysis buffer. The method can further include transferring a mixture of the blood sample and the buffer to a refrigeration device for storage. The mixture can be incubated at room temperature and comprises a dilution buffer added thereto to achieve a target volume. The method can also include having a working concentration of the fixative and RBC lysis buffer is prepared by adding an amount of water that reduces a concentration of the buffer to produce the working concentration. The blood sample can be collected using a lancing technique.
