content_right_WhyCardioChekDistinct Advances in Professional Cholesterol Testing.

One Breakthrough Product.

Fast

The turn-around time with the CardioChek® PA system is less than half that of the most commonly used point-of-care (POC) cholesterol testing product, and up to two days faster than send-out testing. Just two minutes for an entire lipid profile.

Easy

Simpler operation means less training time and fewer user errors. The CardioChek PA POC instrument is a portable, battery-operated, handheld unit that is so comfortable and intuitively easy to use, it allows you, the medical professional, to focus on something far more important - the patient.

Efficient

Faster turn-around time in a screening environment offers the potential to double your productivity. The CardioChek PA POC instrument’s compact size and light weight make it economical to ship and store multiple units. And PTS Panels® test strips have a long shelf life and no refrigeration requirement, so there’s very little waste.

Differential Diagnostic Tool

CardioChek PA is an effective tool to assist healthcare professionals in the differential diagnosis of lipid disorders in accordance with:

    - National Cholesterol Education Program (NCEP)

      - Adult Treatment Panel III (ATP III)

      - Recognized international diagnostic and treatment parameter

        As a screening tool, CardioChek PA provides the flexibility to customize the diagnostic panel for your clients.

        Therapy Management

        NCEP, through the revised ATP III guidelines, has established the target for cholesterol-lowering therapy – LDL. CardioChek PA provides you with the ultimate solution – the CardioChek PA direct LDL test. You now have a fast, accurate means of making treatment decisions or reinforcing compliance for your patients.

        This year more than 32 million people across the world will suffer a heart attack or stroke, and about 12.5 million of those incidents are fatal.2 Blood cholesterol levels have a lot to do with a person’s risk of getting heart disease. In fact, the higher the blood cholesterol level, the greater the risk for developing heart disease. Regular tracking of cholesterol and triglycerides is important for many reasons. 

        - Testing your numbers over time helps you make informed decisions.
        - Checking your numbers gives you peace of mind. Why wait and worry?
        - Tracking your levels lets you know if your heart health regimen is working.

          Your physician can test your cholesterol and triglycerides in the office, and you can test your levels between physician visits using the CardioChek® home cholesterol test system.
