Cardiochek Range Of Products



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.

PTS Panels Test Strips are composed of several layers of filters and reagent-impregnated membranes in a plastic carrier. Each membrane layer performs specific functions to process and facilitate chemical reactions. The dry chemistry membranes are stable at room temperature (except creatinine). Please see below for details of available tests and panels.

Each package of PTS Panels Test Strips contains a color-coded MEMo Chip. When inserted into the top of the CardioChek PA device, the MEMo Chip performs the following functions:

Reads the test strip expiration date

Tells the instrument which test(s) to run

Contains the calibration curve and lot number for the specific test strip

Controls the test sequence and timing

Establishes the measurement range for the test

Know Your Cholesterol

If You Don’t Test, You Don’t Know

Remember that high cholesterol itself does not have symptoms, so unless you test, you won’t know if your cholesterol levels are too high. Frequent testing doesn’t have to mean frequent doctors’ appointments. Using the CardioChek® analyzer and test strips can help you stay on track between doctor appointments. It’s like using a scale when you are trying to lose weight.

 Why Wait and Worry?

Checking your numbers gives you peace of mind, helps you make informed decisions, and lets you know if your heart health regimen is working.
