The Cholesterol/Glucose Duo Test Strips provide a simple and immediate means of diagnosing and monitoring levels of total glucose and cholesterol.
Since results are delivered within minutes, patients who are found to have abnormal cholesterol levels can be shown their results on the CardioChek screen. Seeing instant results provides impact, and can even help strengthen the call to action for the patient.
A drop of a patients blood is placed on a test strip, which has been inserted into the CardioChek analyser. In around two minutes, a numerical value appears on the analyser. this value, when compared to standard guidelines, can determine whether or not the patient is within recommended limits or if they require management of their lipid profile.
Tests are supplied in packs of 25 with the relevant test strip memory chip. A 30µl pipette to collect the blood sample is also required.
