Technology Systems (PTS) is an emerging leader in the new field
of point-of-care diagnostic testing.
PTS proprietary CardioChek System, launched worldwide in 2002 and 2003, gives people the ability to immediately analyze certain critical personal health indicators from a tiny drop of blood. The tests have potential to be of significant value in the management of critical, and often life-threatening, diseases and other serious conditions.
The CardioChek System provides rapid, on-the-spot, precise measurements of:
Total cholesterol, HDL (good) cholesterol, triglycerides and LDL (bad) cholesterol enable people to determine their level of risk for heart disease and cardiovascular disease, as well as other diseases often associated with abnormal blood cholesterol levels, including diabetes, kidney disease and liver disease.
Glucose (blood sugar) is a critical indicator of diabetes.
Elevated blood ketones are an indicator of critical complications from diabetes, alcoholism and/or nutritional problems. Ketones may also be helpful in managing low carbohydrate diets.
The CardioChek System is available in two versions for consumers and for medical professionals.
