Noviplex™ Next Generation Plasma Sample Collection tool for accelerated blood plasma collection and disease analysis.

Shimadzu Scientific Instruments (SSI) has introduced the Noviplex™ Next Generation Plasma Sample Collection tool. Noviplex Cards allow for rapid collection of a volumetric sample of plasma from an unmeasured amount of whole blood within minutes. The technology is ideal for use with LC-MS/MS analysis.

Noviplex Cards offer significant advantages for laboratory and medical professionals, accelerating analysis and simplifying blood collection by eliminating the need for phlebotomy, syringes and glass collection tubes.

“Noviplex technology enables lab-free sample preparation, and the convenient ‘lab-on-a-card’ format rapidly generates plasma for LC-MS/MS analysis,” said Scott Kuzdzal, PhD, life science business unit manager at SSI. “This will greatly simplify collection and processing in medical clinics, labs and hospitals.”

Shimadzu partnered with Novilytic Laboratories to offer Noviplex Cards. The technology allows plasma generation from a finger-stick as opposed to traditional methods of blood collection and preparation.

Plasma can be generated from specimen volumes ranging from 20 to 75 µL of whole blood. The technology offers a single-step, solid-phase method for sample preparation and analyte extraction. Noviplex accelerates processes by eliminating refrigeration, centrifugation solvent extraction and evaporation.

“Next-generation Novilytic Laboratory advances in sample collection and preparation vastly accelerate disease marker analysis and enable a paradigm change in clinical chemistry, wellness monitoring and medicine,” said Fred Regnier, PhD, Professor Emeritus, John H. Law Distinguished Professor of Chemistry, Purdue University, and a co-founder of Novilytic Laboratories.

Noviplex also provides exceptional reproducibility independent of hematocrit, 99 percent removal of red blood cells, and rapid sample preparation for MS-based analysis while maintaining assay reproducibility and selectivity.
