Lactate Plus

SKU: Lactate Plus

Lactate Plus measures blood lactate (muscle performance indicator) very quickly on a very small drop of blood. This results in a virtually painless, yet fast and accurate, test for lactate. Lactate is the premier indicator of aerobic conditioning for athletes and a key predictor of competitive performance.


Less Pain

Lactate tests on other meters are painful and therefore difficult to incorporate into routine training. They require from 5 to 25 microliters of blood, requiring a deep, wide gauge lance to pierce the skin deeply enough to obtain a large sample. Lactate Plus requires only 0.7 microliters of blood. This allows use of the thinnest, most shallow, least painful lancing devices available, increasing the athlete's tolerance for testing.

Fastest Analysis Time

The older technology used by other lactate meters requires 60 seconds for test results. Lactate Plus takes only 13 seconds. This speed means that lactate testing will be less intrusive on the athlete's training.

Very Accurate

Lactate Plus is made by Nova Biomedical, the world leader in hospital-based, blood lactate analyzers. More hospitals worldwide use Nova for lactate measurements than any other brand. The same high standards for accuracy and reliability that are required for hospital use have been incorporated into the Lactate Plus meter.

Eliminates Calibration Strips or Calibration Codes

All other lactate strips require a unique calibration code to be entered into the meter before a strip is used. This code can be entered manually or by inserting a code strip which comes with each vial of strips. These codes are extremely important because they can change the lactate result by up to 30%, depending on the manufacturing lot of the strip. Failing to use a code or using the wrong code can result in very inaccurate lactate results. Nova strips do not need calibration codes or strips, eliminating both a time-consuming step as well as a source of real error.

Low Cost

Lactate Plus meters and strips are priced less than most other similar devices.
