PTS Inc. Introduces CardioChek Plus Point-of-Care Plus Analyzer

The new system adds an electrochemical glucose test, Wi-Fi capabilities and additional ratios

July 31, 2013 — Polymer Technology Systems Inc. has introduced the CardioChek Plus analyzer. It is a combination reflectance lipid and electrochemical glucose analyzer that delivers rapid test results for lipids and glucose simultaneously. The system has Wi-Fi capabilities and can transmit patient results to data collection applications.  

It is the only point-of-care multi-analyte system of its kind that can provide a glucose result, a calculated low-density lipoprotein (LDL) measurement, a non-high-density lipoprotein (HDL) calculated measurement, an LDL/HDL ratio, and a total cholesterol (TC)/HDL ratio simultaneously with a simple fingerstick blood test sample while providing important total cholesterol, HDL cholesterol and triglycerides values at the same time.

The CardioChek Plus provides rapid on-site glucose plus lipid panel screening to help identify at-risk individuals. The capability to deliver both results in just two minutes enables healthcare professionals to improve their throughput, which is particularly important in today's health promotion/screening environment.  

The CardioChek Plus system builds upon the CardioChek PA platform by adding an electrochemical glucose test, Wi-Fi capabilities and additional ratios.  The electrochemical glucose capability provides a faster result than reflectance testing and enables total cholesterol, HDL cholesterol, triglycerides, calculated LDL cholesterol, total cholesterol/HDL ratio, LDL/HDL ratio, non-HDL and glucose results to be delivered simultaneously. 

The CardioChek Plus analyzer also performs all single and multiple analyte tests currently available for other CardioChek systems.  In addition, the device offers a larger, high-resolution screen and two-button operation, and there is no refrigeration required for test strips.
