Apparatus and Method for Biologic Sample Rapid Collection and Recovery Device, and Convenient Storage

In accordance with exemplary embodiments, apparatus and method for biologic sample rapid collection and recovery device, and convenient storage are provided. An exemplary embodiment includes an apparatus comprising a lateral flow technology device including at least a membrane configured to bind an analyte from a sample that flows through the lateral flow technology device, in which a selected portion of the membrane bound to the analyte when placed directly in an analysis system does not substantially inhibit analysis of the analyte. An elution protocol is not required to extract the analyte bound from the selected portion before placed directly in the analysis system.
