Next Generation Beta-hydroxybutyrate Assay
for Reliable Ketosis Management
Product Features and Benefits
Prefilled Reagent Kits
Makes it easy to load directly onto Architect™ and Beckman AU® clinical chemistry systems. Other instrument applications available upon request.
Up to 12 Weeks Stability
Superior stability reduces the frequency of calibration and allows reagent to stay onboard longer.
Lipid Clearing System (LCS) that overcomes the burden of lipemia by eliminating turbidity in the sample before a measurement is performed.
The Best Indicator of DKA
The βHB/Acetoacetate ratio is typically between 3:1 and 7:1 in severe ketotic states.1
