The VHC Reader is an innovative medical device that displays 25-OH Vitamin D results within 15 minutes from a simple finger prick sample. The device displays the test results in ng/ml and nmol/l and comes with software allowing it to store client data and track client's results for re-testing.

The box contains the following:

  • VHC Cube reader
  • Data cable to connect the cube to your laptop and the software
  • Software to track client's tests/results
  • How to use the guide
  • 2-year manufacturers warranty
  • Practitioner training included free of charge

You only need to purchase the cube once. After that, the cube will be able to read other tests.

What does the VHC cube do?

The VHC Quantitative Vitamin-D Test is an immunochromatography-based one-step in vitro test. It is designed for the quantitative determination of a total of 25-hydroxy Vitamin D in human finger-prick blood. This assay provides a preliminary diagnostic test result and can be used for screening for Vitamin D deficiency.

How does the VHC cube know to perform the correct test?

The reader is programmed/calibrated by the RFID card, which currently allows the device to check for 25-OH vitamin D. In the future, further test strips may be added.

What training do I need?

We provide an advanced and certified vitamin D upskilling training course. To become an accredited vitamin D tester, you must complete the course before a certificate is issued. Once you purchase, please email info@nouveauhealthcare.com to book your free training.

All Practitioners are given an operator's manual that outlines all the reader's information, including how to use and all codes in case of errors.

Also available is an online video that shows how the vitamin D testing system works.

Training is provided and certified by Nouveau Healthcare. Training must be booked and completed when purchasing the rapid vitamin D test kit in order to be certified for vitamin D optimisation.

What is the Sensitivity of the VHC Vitamin D Test Kit?

The sensitivity of the VHC Vitamin-D Quantitative Vitamin D Test is 3ng/ml (7.5nmol/l). The sensitivity was determined by calculating the mean plus 3.3 times the standard deviation of twenty Vitamin D-free serum tests.

What is the Specificity of the Vitamin D Test?

30 Vitamin D-free serum samples were tested, all showing negative results, suggesting 100% specificity. No interference and cross-reactivity was observed with Bilirubin, Triglycerides, Cholesterol, Vitamin B12 and Vitamin C.
