Leadcare II – Lead Blood Analyzer

Leadcare II – Lead Blood Analyzer

LeadCare II is the only CLIA-waived, point-of-care blood lead testing system. The system includes the LeadCare II Blood Lead Analyzer and the LeadCare II Test Kit and is designed for the quantitative measurement of lead in fresh whole blood.
The LeadCare II relies on electrochemistry (Anodic Stripping Voltammetry or ASV) and a unique sensor to detect lead in whole blood. Most lead is carried within red blood cells. When a sample of whole blood is mixed with treatment reagent, the red blood cells are lysed and the lead becomes available for detection. When a test is run, the analyzer applies an electrical potential that causes the lead to collect on the sensor. After 3 minutes, the analyzer measures the amount of lead on the sensor and displays the result in micrograms per deciliter (µg/dl).
