Technology and Clinical Utility

The Vibrant Total Micronutrient (DBS) is a convenient and efficient test for measuring whole blood levels of a wide variety of micronutrients. By using whole blood collection, we are able to provide an accurate pooled measurement of levels of the micronutrients in extra- and intracellular spaces.

The test is performed using the gold standard of mass spectrometry, after extracting the specimen from the dried blood card using a patented and proprietary elution buffer coupled with a dilution buffer, for enhanced specimen volume collection and accuracy

Advantages of the Total Micronutrient (DBS) include:

Ease of sample collection - can be done at home by patients

Accuracy of results - mass spectrometry is the gold standard of direct micronutrient measurement

Affordability - with no phlebotomy costs associated, and longer sample stability times, additional collection and handling costs are eliminated

Complements telehealth practices - no need for patients to come to you or leave their home for a blood draw. Collection kits can be shipped directly to patients.

All packages are dispatched within 24 hours using FedEx ground by default. We offer expedited shipping also via FedEx. International shipping rates vary and can be subject to local taxes and import duties. Reach out to us at on our Contact page if you have any questions!
