The CardioChek® PA test system is one of the fastest, most cost-efficient, and user-friendly methods to accurately determine lipid and glucose values at the point of care. In as little as 90 seconds, the CardioChek PA test system provides values and measurements using the same technology as clinical laboratories. Handheld and battery-powered, the patient-friendly CardioChek PA analyzer requires a small blood sample from a simple fingerstick. The Cardiochek PA offers a full range of cholesterol testing options, from the basic Total Cholesterol cassette to the full Lipid Profile+Glucose cassette, which includes Total Cholesterol, Trigylcerides, HDL, calculated LDL, and Blood Glucose. These simple tests can be used to determine a patient’s risk for heart disease or to regularly monitor patients already undergoing treatment.
The Cardiochek PA is “CLIA waived” under the Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments of 1988 and CRMLN Certified. The system is simple to use, requires minimal training and is as reliably accurate as tests offered in a laboratory. In most cases, Medicare and third-party health insurance reimburse the costs of the Cardichek PA System tests.
