Simple, accurate and reliable lactate measurement in three easy steps

Lactate Scout+ is used by clinicians around the world for the easy and reliable measurement of lactate. It was developed primarily for use in sports medicine but has found other applications within medical and veterinary medicine.

Lactate Scout+ is a hand-held lactate analyzer that requires just 0.2 µl of capillary blood and returns results in 10 seconds. Up to 250 results can be stored on the device which also features stopwatch and count down timers for performance measurement.

Lactate Scout+ has been designed to be used in the field as a training companion for individuals or sports teams. Because lactate is an important measurement for many different types of athlete competing in different climates, Lactate Scout+ operates in temperatures from 5-45 °C and up to 85 % humidity.

The features of Lactate Scout+, such as the integrated step test function and Bluetooth connectivity, make it the most advanced lactate meter in the market.

Additionally the operation of these features is intuitive. Lactate Scout+ uses a jog dial navigation and a simple menu structure which is displayed on a high quality backlit screen that ensures excellent readability under changing light conditions and viewing angles.

Two 'AAA' batteries are all that is required to perform over 1,000 tests and with pre-calibrated test strips and automated self-test the Lactate Scout+ is the easiest and most reliable portable lactate analyser available.
