Blood Ammonia Meter
PocketChem BA PA-4140

  • Whole-blood measurement
    PocketChem BA realizes whole blood measurement without pretreatment. The level of blood ammonia that is susceptible to room temperature can be measured right after collecting blood. Minimal operation gives a maximum support to emergency measurement.

  • Small sample volume
    Required amount for measurement is only 20μL. No special collection tube is necessary.
    You can quickly measure the level of blood ammonia with blood sampling from earlobe.

  • Lightweight and compact design
    The weight of the palm-sized analyzer is just 150g and allows near-patient testing easily.

  • Detachable printer
    A printer (optional) can be detached from the analyzer. Hard copy of measurement result can be obtained if you connect a printer to analyzer. Printer and AC adapter can be used commonly with Portable Urine Analyzer PU-4010.

  • Battery driven
    Analyzer can be operated by two AA batteries or with AC adapter.
    ※The AC adapter is needed when using the printer.

  • Easy-to-maintain
    All what you need to clean daily is the removable strip holder.Implementation of LED for light source eliminated a complicated lamp replacement.

  • Temperature compensation
    Built-in temperature sensor automatically compensates for temperature in the range of 10 - 35℃.

  • Data management function
    Up to 50 measurement results can be memorized. Using serial communication function (RS-232C), measurement results can be transferred to PC.

  • Performing a test

  • Ammonia Test Kit II (The exclusive test strip)

    Dry chemistry based on a microdiffusion method provides high-precision measurement with whole blood.
