Table 7: Experiment 4 used to test the effect of heat and humidity on 3.0 μL of blood F2, F1 and M1 blood samples (3.0 μL) deposited on various substrates and subjected to heat and humidity conditions. As indicated, ten of these samples were run in duplicate for reproducibility study. Both the RapidHIT™ System and the traditional method were used in this experiment.
