Roche Plasma Separation Card

Roche announced the launch of the Cobas Plasma Separation Card, a sample collection device for HIV plasma viral load testing. By providing a small amount of a patient’s blood from a fingertip, the specially designed card simplifies blood collection and sample transportation, Roche said. 

The card allows for reliable quantitative testing of patients with HIV living in remote areas while meeting World Health Organization requirements for determining HIV viral load prior to setting treatment.
