HemogloBind™ Blood Card Reagent Kit
Hemoglobin depletion and protein enrichment from dried blood spots
Hemoglobin is a common contaminant from dried whole blood cards and not normally found in
serum samples. The HemogloBind™ Blood Card protocol was designed to substantially
reduce the presence of hemoglobin and its associated interference with many serum proteins
and other analytes.
HemogloBind™ is engineered for a high degree of selectivity and does not cross react with
most common serum components, making it an excellent sample prep in numerous
applications. These include analytical protocols where optical interference is problematic, such
as bilirubin and cholinesterase analysis.
• Dried blood spots are useful for low volume analyses, and simple collection and transport
• Protocols suitable for inexpensive whole blood card systems, no need for cell separation
• Hemoglobin binding >90%, with 30-45 minute spin-filter format
• Protocols based on ≤10 µl whole blood applied, but suspension format is flexible to most
• Blood proteins and enzymes are enriched for biomarker and proteomic investigations.
• Removes hemoglobin from diverse species including human, sheep, bovine, goat, rat,
• High throughput and scaleable.
