The Reflotron Applicator

The following photographs show how the Reflotron applicator is used with the Accutrend Lactate or Accusport lactate analyzer.



The Reflotron applicator and capillary tubes

Blood has been collected in a capillary tube

The capillary tube is then inserted into the Reflotron applicator

The Reflotron applicator with the capillary tube is held over the test strip and the button at the top is pressed

down to push air through the capillary tube and the blood is then forced onto the test strip

When the strip is covered with blood the analyzer can then measure the lactate concentration in the blood.


These steps must be accompanied by proper blood handling techniques!
