TruCulture® is a closed system for whole blood collection and culturing that is performed at the site of sample collection with no more than a phlebotomist and a heat block.
The TruCulture whole blood culture system:
- Starts the instant a 1mL blood sample is drawn directly into the TruCulture tube without delay or manipulation which substantially improves reproducibility.
- Nourishes the leukocytes with 2 mL optimized media with immune stimulants or drug candidates for up to 48 hours of culture.
- Uses a simple valve separator to separate the cells from the culture supernatant after incubation for downstream measurement of secreted cytokines or cell analysis.
