Standard test kits
Standard ‘chemistry set’ type kits typically contain multiple accessories that require significant handling and manual dexterity to perform a rapid test, resulting in high unacceptably infield error rates. Additionally, the use of standard test kits results in multiple items being contaminated with blood, generating unsafe working practices for the healthcare worker and cross-infection risks to the patient.
Versus the all-in-one AtomoRapid
AtomoRapidTM offers an alternative. It combines key functionalities into the test including: a contacted activated safety lancet that automatically locks out after use; a blood collection and delivery system to safely collect and deliver the correct blood volume; and the test strip which is enclosed within the device. The product has been designed to simplify the test process and can be used by a wider range of users, including lay consumers.
