KETOSCAN Mini is the world’s first cartridge based ketone analyser and a real-time fat burning monitor. With a simple exhale of breath, users can find out their ketosis level with great accuracy.
This pocket-sized ketone meter measures the concentration of ketones (acetone) in your exhaled breath, indicating when the body is burning fat and enabling users to perfect their food and exercise plans.
The KETOSCAN Mini can help to optimise:
Blood test accuracy – without the pain
KETOSCAN Mini provides a convenient, accurate and non-invasive solution to ketone testing by testing the breath for acetone. Other methods can be invasive, costly and inaccurate.
Blood testing for β-hydroxybutyrate has been the most popular option for ketone analysis and is known to be the most direct way to find out ketone status. However, blood testing comes with high consumable costs – up to £2 per strip – and requires fresh blood for each test. Ouch!
KETOSCAN Mini is an investment worth making; after purchase, the replacement sensor change service costs just £39 at intervals of 300 tests – that’s less than 13p per test. And breath testing is easy and quick – just like blowing into a breathalyser.
The unique electrochemical sensor cartridge inside the KETOSCAN Mini is replaceable after 300 tests to guarantee continued accuracy.
A sensor change service is £39 and includes professional fitting of a new sensor. AlcoDigital are the dedicated service centre for Ketoscan in the UK.
