Sports Performance

EKF's range of sports performance blood analyzers provide coaches, athletes and clinicians with accurate and easy-to-use diagnostic tools that help improve results on the track, field or snow.

Biosen and Lactate Scout+ have been designed to deliver fast, lab-accurate results for the amount of lactate in blood; Biosen users can obtain glucose readings simulateously through the additon of a second channel.

Testing lactate has been an established parameter of performance diagnostics in sports for many years. Understanding an athlete's lactate levels helps determine their optimal training regime, avoid over or under exercising and monitors performance progress. Only targeted and healthy training leads to success.

This works in the same way for fitness and cardio-rehabilitation training. 

Measuring lactate can guide a safe and efficient training at maximum fat burning intensity but avoiding over-exhaustion.

Lactate in healthy humans clears very quickly. Prolonged elevated lactate levels are a product of excess production combined with reduced clearance. This is mostly caused by pathologic processes and reflects tissue hypoxia or non-hypoxic tissue injury.

Biosen and Lactate Scout+ are used by football teams in the English Premier League, Bundesliga and Italian League football, as well as Olympic Associations and National Institutes of Sport around the world.

Lactate testing is an established parameter in helping coaches develop athlete training regimes that are safe and efficient.
