How the Accutrend
GC meter works
When a blood sample is placed on the Accutrend Cholesterol
test strip, the the Accutrend GC meter measures the intensity of the reaction
colour within the specially coated test strips using a technology called "reflectance
photometry". The meter then calculates the concentration of the sample through
a "lot-specific" algorithm. The end result is a cholesterol reading.
