The Macroduct System eliminates errors that were inherent in many previously used methods
The Macroduct Advanced sweat inducer incorporates a friendly, straightforward touch-screen user interface. It provides a stepby-step visual guide of all aspects of sweat induction and collection, further enhancing the standardization of the sweat test. This assures proper procedures are followed. An integrated timer conveniently monitors the 30-minute collection time, and exportable test data helps verify correct performance of the tests.
The carefully validated functional performance of the Macroduct Advanced sweat inducer is the same as the standard Macroduct system. it delivers 1.5 milliamps of current for 5 minutes, using the same pilocarpine concentration in the Macroduct Advanced pilogel discs and the
same collection area in the Macroduct Advanced elliptical collectors. Therefore, the minimum amount of sweat needed is still 15 microliters of sweat in a 30-minute collection period.
