Cystic Fibrosis

Because routinely screening newborns for cystic fibrosis leads to early diagnosis and means treatment can begin immediately.
ELITech Biomedical Systems is the acknowledged world leader for the laboratory diagnosis of cystic fibrosis with our proven Macroduct Sweat Collection System for stimulation and collection of sweat and our Sweat-Chek (total electrolyte analysis) or Chloro-Chek (Chloride titration) analyzers. When considering a potential laboratory diagnosis of cystic fibrosis, a physician still relies heavily upon the results of the sweat test, which is capable of producing an unequivocal, quantitative result to corroborate clinical observations. The Macroduct System provides the most accurate and simple sweat test system available. ELITech’s peerless scientific and engineering expertise has also produced Nanoduct, the completely integrated and miniaturized sweat analysis system for patients of any age. The Nanoduct patented in-situ stimulation and analysis provide clinicians with the earliest possible laboratory diagnosis of cystic fibrosis, enabling doctors to intervene and treat this disease in the earliest days of life.
