First Scientific Publication Ser-Col in Acta Tropica – Elsevier
We are pleased to announce the publication ‘Automated and combined HIV, HBV, HCV, and syphilis testing among illegal gold miners in French Guiana using a standardised dried blood device’ in the journal Acta Tropica.
In this publication, Professor Edouard Tuaillon of the Institute of Molecular Genetics of Montpellier (Institut de Génétique Moléculaire de Montpellier (IGMM)) describes the use of the Labonovum Ser-Col blood collection device in comparison with plasma results and DBS results in a study of HIV, HBV, and syphilis among illegal gold miners in French Guiana.
The researchers established a complete concordance of Ser-Col and DBS results for HIV diagnosis compared with plasma results. Ser-Col facilitates large-scale surveys and improves testing of populations living in remote areas.
