Let us introduce to you the Peptest Cube – a small and easy to use electronic lateral flow device reader that lets medical professionals quickly measures the concentration of Pepsin in saliva samples.
The Cube is suitable for use in the quantitative and qualitative evaluation of Pepsin measurement results and will display the result of pepsin concentration directly in ng/ml in just three seconds.
Weighing only 40g and with an edge length of 41mm, the Peptest Cube can be used as a mobile handheld device or as a desktop measuring device remotely controlled via USB cable.
It is now available for medical professionals and official Peptest distributors only.
How does it work
Peptest is a non‑invasive, diagnostic medical device for detecting pepsin in saliva or sputum.
The lateral flow device contains two types of unique antibodies – one is tagged with a colorimetric marker and becomes soluble on application of a test sample. The other antibody is found in a nitrocellulose membrane, at the test line.
Any pepsin in the sample is bound at the test line by the two antibodies and a coloured line is seen through the viewing window in the plastic case.
The Peptest Cube is a mobile measuring device suitable for colorimetric tests based on reflectance measurements to capture the optical density. The built-in techniques allow a quantitative and qualitative evaluation of the Peptest lateral flow assay.
The test specific data is transferred wirelessly by radio-frequency identification (RFID) before each measurement and can be stored internally. Every saved result includes a unique measurement ID, test name, lot number, distributor/manufacturer, and date and time.
The measurement data can also be extracted via USB using a special USB cable and the Peptest Cube Reader Software. The device is powered by battery but can also be powered via USB.
