The LipidPlus® Lipid and Glucose Measuring System offers a convenient, accurate and cost-effective way to screen patients for lipid disorders and help manage their treatment. The LipidPlus® Cholesterol Monitor measures total cholesterol (TC), high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol, triglycerides, and glucose, and provides calculated low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol. The LipidPlus® point-of-care cholesterol monitoring system provides rapid results in just two minutes using only a small blood sample.
Jant Pharmacal’s LipidPlus® Meter is intended for in-vitro diagnostic use in professional health care settings. The LipidPlus® meter and strips are CLIA-waived, FDA-cleared, and CRMLN Certified for Cholesterol and HDL. Measurements obtained by the LipidPlus® may be used in the diagnosis and treatment of disorders involving excess cholesterol in the blood and lipid, lipoprotein metabolism disorders, as well as aid in the management of diabetes using the glucose test function. The American Heart Association recommends adults over 20 have their cholesterol checked every four to six years to help determine risk for cardiovascular disease and stroke.
The lipid profile test result is based on a reading of reflection density. When blood is applied, the color changes in the test area through an enzyme reaction and the meter then records this change and converts the measurement to the displayed result based on the coding in the strip. Glucose in the blood sample will react to the electrodes in the glucose test strip, generating an electrical current that stimulates a chemical reaction, which is converted to the corresponding blood glucose value by the LipidPlus® meter and displayed.
The LipidPlus® features two coding systems for automatic code recognition. Each vial of Lipid Profile test strips has an RFID-tag, which enables the meter to recognize its code number automatically. With the LipidPlus® code recognition, there is no need to change calibration chips with each lot of reagent. LipidPlus® Glucose test strips have a color-tag on the back of each strip which also enables the meter to recognize its code number automatically.
