Spot On Science’s free, publicly accessible database aids researchers by providing rapid access to published dried blood spot (DBS) test methods.

Spot On Sciences, Inc., an Austin-based medical device company, has just released a web-based searchable database that focuses exclusively on advances made in dried blood spot (DBS) methods and technology over the last 40 years. The database, the first and only one currently accessible to the public, is designed to help advance DBS adoption and assist bioscience researchers with work being done in diagnostic testing and medical research. Recent advances in DBS technology have elevated its value both as a sampling tool and vital component of laboratory analysis.

"Those of us in interested in DBS have been waiting for this type of research tool for a long time” said Dr. John Repass, former research scientist at M.D. Anderson Cancer Center and current Chief Scientist at ARQ Genetics. “This database allows an easier way for me to search and navigate through the myriad of studies scattered over hundreds of sources. It’s a great time-saver for anyone doing research and developing DBS methods.”

Spot On Sciences, Inc.’s CEO, Dr. Jeanette Hill, explained that “there’s been an explosion of methods and papers devoted to DBS and we detected the need within the bioscience community for this type of site-based resource. Anyone can come to our site and can browse by analyte or keywords to track down key information from over 1,000 entries.”
