TruCulture® Blood Collection and Whole Blood Culture System (RUO)*

“Things should be made as simple as possible, but not any simpler.”
- Albert Einstein

The TruCulture System is designed to capture immune cell activity without introducing sample collection and manipulation variables. The system employs a single, self-contained tube for whole blood collection and culture.

What it is/does

  • Integrated blood collection device and whole blood culture system
  • Closed system
  • Simple to use by any trained phlebotomist
  • Reliable, reproducible
  • Utilizes general purpose laboratory equipment, i.e., heat block
  • Available with and without a variety of stimulants, customizable

What it is not/does not do

  • Partition monocytes from other whole blood components including granulocytes, platelets and red blood cells
  • Artificial, open system requiring transfer of specimen to another tube.
  • Require multiple steps; laborious
  • Variable
  • Require centrifuge or specialized laboratory or personnel
