• The NycoCard System is Axis-Shield's most widely distributed product range, particularly suited to countries with developing healthcare systems.
  • 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 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.
  • The Reader is a low-cost, portable point-of-care instrument designed for rapid and reliable measurements of NycoCard products.

The NycoCard READER II is a small battery powered instrument, designed to measure all NycoCard products.

It consists of two units: the instrument box, which is the operational and calculating unit, and the Reader pen, which detects the signal.

Patented measurement principle:

Each NycoCard test comprises a unique Test Device where the test is performed.

The device has a central well for sample and reagent application, which is shaped to fit the Reader pen. When the pen is placed over the sample and the pen sleeve is pushed down, the measurement starts automatically and the test result appears on the display.
