Screening for cardiovascular risk factors

  • A significant number of patients in primary care are dyslipidemic and therefore at higher risk of cardiovascular disease1-3
  • In addition, many patients with lipid dis­orders are either treated insufficiently or not treated at all1
  • Point of care lipid testing can substantially improve recognition as well as management of dyslipidemic patients in primary care1

 

Safety and reassurance

 

  • Built-in automatic performance testing and meter self-testing for reliable results

 

Ease of use

 

  • Simplicity makes device ideal for testing in the physician office or in hospital ­settings

 

Product characteristics

 

  • Convenient determination of cholesterol, triglycerides, glucose and lactate using capillary blood
  • Positive control strip and parameter ­recognition are used for calibration
  • Test strips can be stored at room ­temperature
  • Can store up to 100 different measurements with date, time and flags
  • Great precision and accuracy across the measuring range
