Pocket-sized point-of-care lactate monitor

EKF Diagnostics recently launched its new Lactate Scout 4 handheld lactate analyser for fast and accurate sports performance monitoring. Lactate Scout 4 is designed for use in the field as a training companion for individuals or sports teams.

Functionality of the Lactate Scout 4 is enhanced by Bluetooth connectivity to all major brands of heart rate monitor. Heart rate data can now be collected and collated using the step test function to provide in-depth analysis of performance. Up to 500 lactate results can also be stored on the device, all of which are compensated for the influence of low and high haematocrit levels. Adding to its practicality and reliability, the Lactate Scout 4 can undertake 1000 tests using just two CR2450 lithium batteries.

EKF Diagnostics offers many products for point-of-care (POC) testing, including for diabetes, anaemia and maternal care. Its product portfolio also includes the recently US Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-cleared DiaSpect Tm haemoglobin analyser and Quo-Lab HbA1c analyser, which was successfully evaluated in a study by the European Reference Laboratory for Glycohemoglobin, and published in the Journal of Diabetes Science and Technology.
