The CardioChek® Test System is...
...an easy to use, yet unique and proprietary technology. The system consists of the CardioChek analyzer, test strips, and a MEMo Chip®.
The CardioChek analyzer is a hand-held, battery-powered instrument that uses a test methodology called reflectance photometry. When a blood sample is applied to the test strip in the analyzer, a series of chemical reactions occurs, which ultimately produce a color change on the back of the test strip. The CardioChek analyzer then compares the intensity of the color to the calibration information stored in the MEMo Chip to calculate and display the test result.
The CardioChek test strips are simple to use and employ the same type of chemical reagents used in clinical laboratory equipment.
The CardioChek MEMo Chip is the key link between the test strip and the analyzer. A MEMo Chip is included with each vial of test strips and contains specific calibration and other information that enables the analyzer to "read" each particular test strip.
The underlying technology of the CardioChek PA System employs innovative technology to conduct sample preparation and complex chemical analysis based on clinical lab procedures; All in a simple, user-friendly format.
