How does EC8+ I-Stat Cartridge - 25 Test work?

Measurements are taken using electrochemical-sensing technology. A group of thin film electrodes, which are located at the top of each cartridge, are coated with chemically-sensitive film. The coated sensors react to small changes that are caused by chemical reactions within the sample. The sensors are either conductometric (measuring conductivity changes), amperometric (measuring electric current changes), or potentiometric (measuring electric potential changes). The analyte concentration is determined through measuring the difference between the sample and the calibrant. The difference is converted to the exact concentration units for the analyte using the internal processor of the analyzer. The maximum record number depends on the customization settings of your handheld device, but the VetScan i-Stat1 stores a minimum of 1,000 records.
