Intended Use

The CardioChek ChekMate™ is a two level, dry strip quality control system designed to verify the performance of the CardioChek® PA device. CardioChek Chekmate is to be used in conjunction with liquid PTS Panels® Quality Controls.

Quality Control for the CardioChek PA System

Device Quality Control Strips To check device operation, it is recommended that ChekMate Quality Control strips be run once each day of device use. Both Level 1 and Level 2 ChekMate Quality Control strips will report four (4) results. These results (C1 RED, C2 RED, C3 RED, C1 GREEN) correspond to a specific optical reading for each chemistry test “window”.

Liquid PTS Panels® Quality Controls

To check the performance of the entire CardioChek test system: CardioChek PA device, MEMo Chip®, and PTS Panels test strips; it is recommended that the liquid PTS Panels Quality Controls be run whenever a new lot of PTS Panels test strips are received or as required by local accrediting and regulatory bodies. Please refer to the liquid PTS Panels Quality Controls package inserts for instructions on how to run liquid quality controls.

Precautions

  • Handle the ChekMate Quality Control strips with care; do not drop.
  • Do not store or operate in direct light.
  • The control strips should always be stored in the original container when not in use to protect from light and from accidental scratching.
  • Never touch the blue membrane which is the read area of the control strip.
  • Do not expose control strips to high humidity, extreme heat, cold, dust or dirt.
  • ChekMate Quality Control strips are designed to closely simulate actual test conditions in the process of assuring proper device function; thus recommended usage is 500 uses or 18 months.

Storage and Handling

Store in a cool dry place at room temperature of 68-80°F (20-27°C) and 20-80% relative humidity (RH). Always store in the original container when not in use to protect from light and from accidental scratching. Do not freeze.
