The Roche Reflotron Plus is an in vitro diagnostic device. The system using reflective photometry to determine results. Reflotron is popular in clinical health screening and sports science laboratories. This offers a rapid and intuitive way of testing with minimal human intervention.
The three key steps in Reflotron tests are:
1. Collect blood and apply a sample to the reagent strip
2. Insert the reagent strip in the instrument.
3. Read the result, obtained between two and three minutes.
Reflotron has a keyboard that assigns samples to patients. The instrument saves the result together with the patient data. It can use its onboard printer to print the result along with the date, time and patient name or number.
Downloading data to a computer or laboratory information management system is also possible – the benefit is fast and reliable results.
Reflotron Test strips determine blood chemistry parameters using undiluted specimen material (whole blood).
