CardioChek® Professional Analyser

CardioChek® Professional Analyser



The CardioChek PA test system can accurately determine Total Cholesterol, HDL Cholesterol, Triglycerides, LDL Cholesterol (calc.), TC/HDL (calc.), glucose and several combinations of these parameters in as little as 90 seconds, at the point of care. This portable and cost-efficient device uses the same technology as clinical laboratories and only requires a small blood sample from a simple fingerstick.

The CardioChek® Professional Analyser (PA) is an easy to use Point of Care system ideal for multiple clinical settings.  Reviewed in 2009 by the NHS Centre for Evidence-based Purchasing and recently by the Heart UK Lab Committee, the CardioChek PA System is now the market leader in the Point of Care Lipid testing arena. There are currently over 9000 devices with the majority being used in the NHS Health Checks program. The portable device is battery operated, compact and easily stored.

Important notes

In-vitro use only

To be used by trained healthcare professionals only

The CardioChek® PA test system is intended to be used as a screening tool to aid the management of Cardiovascular and related diseases.

Incredibly Versatile

There is a range of analyte test panels that can be used with the CardioChek® PA test system. This includes Total Cholesterol (TC), High Density Lipid (HDL), Triglycerides, and Glucose (mmol/L). In addition, the CardioChek® PA test system can also calculate LDL and Cholesterol/HDL Ratios. Only a small blood sample is required (15 – 40 µL). Results are delivered in 90 seconds, so they can be discussed within the consultation, therefore saving time and removing the need for follow-up appointments.

Recognised

In the UK the CCPA system is CE-marked for Professional use, accepted by HEART UK and is considered suitable for the NHS Health Checks program (CEP Report 2009). In the USA it is certified by the Cholesterol Reference Method Laboratory Network (CRMLN) and National.
