Quarantine Clearance using Dried Blood Spot (DBS) cards

ComPath has received confirmation from the Department of Agriculture & Water Resources that samples submitted using dried blood spot cards are accepted for Hantavirus testing and subsequent clearance from Quarantine Approved Premises or Approved Arrangements in the new terminology. This will allow for simple blood collection techniques to be used as only a single drop of whole blood is required for the M-AQIS or R-AQIS (HAN) panel. Contact the lab if you would like to find out more about dried blood spot sampling and to get access to the TEGO cards.
