Simple quantitative determination of 25(OH) vitamin D from blood samples
Preventis SmarTest Pro Vitamin D is a rapid test system for the quantitative determination of 25(OH) vitamin D in finger-prick blood sample, ideal for GPs, pharmacies and outpatient clinics. Vitamin D has multiple roles in the human body; in addition to its well established role in the regulation of calcium absorption and the promotion of bone growth, other recognised health benefits include a reduced risk of diseases such as type 1 diabetes and common cancers. This quantitative test supports fast and effective vitamin D supplement optimisation, and enables close monitoring of 25(OH) vitamin D levels in a point of care setting. The kit contains everything needed to prepare, collect and test a finger-prick blood sample.
Measuring 25(OH) vitamin D levels
The best indicator of vitamin D levels is the serum concentration of 25(OH) vitamin D, which can help to provide a sound basis for treatment. The SmarTest Pro Vitamin D kit is an in vitro diagnostic device (IVD) intended for use by healthcare professionals and for self-testing in a clinic, pharmacy or home setting, with a measuring range of 5-100 ng/ml. A reliable smartphone app is used to quantitively analyse the results based on the colour intensity of the control and test lines. Results are displayed and stored in the app and can be monitored over time.
