Lactotest 202 has been developed to provide a rapid and reliable diagnosis of gastric-intestinal disorders through the measurement of a shortage and/or mal-absorption of the composition of carbohydrates.
Particularly efficient in screening for lactose intolerance, the Lactotest 202 also gives a good indication of small intestinal bacterial proliferations (SIBO) and is indicated for the evaluation of intestinal transit time.
The Lactotest 202 range consists of:
Lactotest 202 “Control” (H2 + CO2)
Lactotest 202 “Xtend” (H2 + CO2 + CH4)
The electro-chemical sensor with thermal compensation for H2 analysers is infrared, for CH4 and CO2, and supplies an accurate test of measurement in less than one minute. The Lactotest 202 “Control” can be updated with the detection of CH4;
The Lactotest 202 operates with an automatic pump for the test sample and the flow of residual gas, making it immediately available for a successive test.
Detection of mal-absorption of carbohydrates
Sampling through collection of gas breathed
Patient data interface (PDI): integration of patient database; upload/download of results in Hospital Computerised Systems (HIS); creation of reports (Microsoft Word, pdf, etc.)
Once a day with pre-mixed calibration gas
