PTS Panels® Lipid Panel test strips measure total cholesterol, HDL cholesterol, and triglycerides in whole blood with the CardioChek PA or the CardioChek Plus professional analyzer, and provide a quantitative result. PTS Panels test strips are designed for use with fresh, capillary (fingerstick) whole blood, or fresh venous whole blood collected in EDTA or heparin tubes. A MEMo Chip® is provided with each package of test strips and must be properly inserted into the analyzer before any test can be run. The MEMo Chip contains the test name, calibration curve, lot number, and test strip expiration date. After the test strip is inserted into the analyzer and blood applied to the test strip, test results are displayed in as little as 90 seconds.
