ichroma™ II is an automatic or semiautomatic in-vitro diagnostic device that measures the concentration of analytes, contained in blood, urine, or other samples, in quantitative or semi-quantitative ways. Compared to the first-generation device, ichroma™. Ichroma™ II has been improved by adding several new features such as: new user interface, new touch screen display and an advanced optical system, which provides the user a wide variety of tests.
In addition, ichroma™ II was designed to improve data input efficiency and, wireless communication connectivity through separated purchasable accessories. Furthermore program update can be, now, proceeded easily using SD card. It is also possible to use batteries which improves portability. It is one of the biggest advantages of point-of-care testing (POCT) equipment as it ensures reliable testing in unstable power environments.
