With the Mission Cholesterol Meter you can take a direct measurement of your levels of Total Cholesterol, HDL (good Cholesterol) and Triglycerides (free fat) EITHER as individual tests (each needing a fresh 10 microlitre blood sample) and from these three values you can then manually calculate your level of LDL (bad Cholesterol) OR you can run a triple (Full Lipid) test using the "3 in 1" Test Strips which will give you the three separate direct readings from one (35 microlitre) blood sample plus an automatically calculated value for LDL.
For home users we recommend starting with individual Test Strips then move to the "3 in 1" analysis once you've mastered the technique. The most common combination used by professionals including NHS sponsored screening companies is Total Cholesterol and HDL.
Professional (and serious domestic) users would benefit by using the time saving "3 in 1" option.
In addition to analysing levels of Cholesterol the Mission System provides a "Cardio Risk Assessment" evaluating the patient's risk of heart attack, stroke and heart disease (when used with the "3 - in - 1" Test Devices).
- Test Results available within 2 minutes even for the Full Lipid option.
- Single Test for Total Cholesterol, HDL and Triglycerides
- Multiple Test for Total Cholesterol (CHOL), High Density Lipoproteing (HDL) and Triglyceride
..(this option also includes calculated Low Density Lipoprotein (LDL), CHO / HDL ratio)
- Cardio Risk Assessment evaluates risk of heart attack, stroke and heart disease.
- Can test whole blood, serum or plasma
- High hematocrit Range of 0 - 55%
- Quick results ideal for both professional and home use.
EASY TO USE
- Large LCD screen for easy reading
- Battery operated (standard). Can be run from a/c adapter (not included).
- Results can be displayed in European or USA units.
- Memory storage for up to 200 test results.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
A sample of blood (10 microlitres for the single test and 35 microlitres for the triple "all in one" test) is taken from a finger prick and transferred by using a capillary pipette onto a Test Strip (Test Device) inserted into the Meter. The Test Strip is individually (by batch) calibrated to the Meter by a MeMo Chip inserted into the Meter at the start of the test.
The blood sample passes through a series of paper filters finally reacting with the bottom layer discolouring the (visible) disc. This is then optically analysed to produce the desired reading. This "Reflection Photometryl" technique is recognised as being the most accurate method of analysing Cholesterol components at a patient screening level.
Suitable both for home and professional use The Mission Cholesterol Monitoring System can provide directly measured readings for Total Cholesterol (CHOL), High Density Cholesterol (HDL, good Cholesterol), Triglycerides (TRIG, free fat), the calculated ratio of CHOL to HDL and a calculated reading for Low Density Cholesterol (LDL, bad cholesterol).
This can be done one component at a time using "single" test Test Strips (one blood sample and one test each for Total Cholesterol, HDL and Triglycerides) or all at once using the "3 - in - 1" Test Strips.
Why choose the single tests? Partly because they use a much smaller blood sample and are therefore easier to perform and partly because when testing for Triglcerides in order to achieve an accurate base level the patient should have food fasted for 12 hours.
In addition (intended specifically for professional users) it can provide its full analysis from whole blood, plasma or serum and provide the Coronary Heart Disease (CHD) Risk Evaluation on a patient by patient basis.
All results can be displayed in USA or European units. It features Memory storage for up to 200 test results and can be connected to a PC via USB.

Types of Cholesterol.
The importance of cholesterol to our overall health is very well publicised throughout the UK not just via our newspapers and television programmes but by many of the advertisements we read and listen to every day.
High cholesterol levels can be bad news. Our bodies need the right amount and the right type of cholesterol to remain healthy.
Cholesterol is carried through the blood by substances called High Density Lipoprotein (HDL) and Low Density Lipoprotein (LDL). HDL carries the cholesterol away from the heart and blood vessels thus helping to prevent the arteries from becoming clogged and narrowing. HDL is therefore regarded as "good" cholesterol.
LDL ("bad" cholesterol) is more likely to cause a build up on artery walls. If this occurs the build up of cholesterol in the coranary arteries can restrict the blood flow into the heart - the highest cause of heart disease in the Western World.
Symptoms of High Cholesterol.
br> Because there are no real symptoms it is very difficult to know if your cholesterol levels are high without first doing a simple blood test. Until now this has only been possible through your GP or local hospital. With the development of sophisticated analysers some pharmacies have introduced an "in store" service but this is expensive and designed for their "health" as much as for yours!
With the introduction of the CardioChek ST Analyser this blood test can now be done in the comfort and convenience of your own home.
It is simple, affordable and extremely accurate. With the Cardiochek ST you can measure "total" cholesterol, the most important indicator, the level of HDL (good cholesterol), Triglycerides and by calculation the level of LDL (bad cholesterol).
In addition you can measure Glucose and Keytones.
The following indications may suggest the possibility that the fat levels in your blood are high:
- Small yellow lumps on the eyelids and tendons of the hands and knees.
- A white ring appearing on the cornea of the eye.
- If you suffer from diabetes
- If you are a smoker
- If there is a family history of heart disease / heart attack.
- If you are overweight.
