The FP705™ paper has tested and validated for use with Dried Blood Stain (DBS) and Dried Sample Stain (DSS) technologies. It is the first and currently choice platform for the Ensemble™ (ECS™); 705™, PRO™, PRoPRIME™, DIRECT™, PRESERVE™ and Fitzco Indicating products. It is a unique biological grade collection paper, which enhances specimen collection. The samples will not run or defuse into the paper. Specimen stability is assured though the our ISO 9001:2008 certified and cGMP Quality Assurance. FP705™ is a guarenteed to be a dependable composition of the paper maintaining a consistant thickness, flow rate and absorbency. When converted into a card format it is an easy, simple collection device.

The FP705™ paper was initially validated for the United States military DNA program. The card format originated from an adaptation of a card designed for the US military in 1991. The "fold over" flap was added to protect the specimen from outside contamination. The flap was also a useful tool in helping the sample dry. Originally the card had four circles with each circle then serrated into four parts. This helped the technicians to separate the samples for preparation in the lab. After the hand punches were introduced, the need for serrations was gone. We abandoned the serrations as part of the design.

DNA Collection Cards: The Fitzco Card - In the early to mid 90’s, the card was simply known as the FITZCO® Card. At Fitzco, we actually just called it the "DNA card". It was the OJ trial that actually branded it as the "FITZCO" Card. It was used by many entities, countries, states and labs for identification and evidence processing, as per the OJ Trial (First). We changed the name of the card to "Classic" because of the demand for different designs: Micro, Gene, Mini, etc.

FP705™ Paper is the base of our Ensemble™ and is the indicating line of all of our products.
