The NycoCard System is Axis-Shield's most widely distributed product range, particularly suited to countries with developing healthcare systems. It represents a versatile, low-cost package designed to deliver reliable testing for certain key markers, in the presence of the patient. The system offers four selected point-of-care tests: CRP, HbA1c, D-Dimer and U-Albumin. They can all be analysed on the same instrument - the NycoCard Reader II.
NycoCard - an established technology
NycoCard was introduced to the market in the early 1990's starting with the non-instrumental NycoCard CRP card-test, followed by the NycoCard D-Dimer. HbA1c and U-Albumin concluded the range of planned NycoCard tests for the point-of-care market. During this time the NycoCard Reader and Reader II were also introduced, satisfying demand for automated reading of NycoCard tests.
The Reader is a low-cost, portable point-of-care instrument designed for rapid and reliable measurements of NycoCard products.
