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 total 25-hydroxy Vitamin D in a human finger-prick blood. This assay provides a preliminary diagnostic test result and can be used for screening of 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 receive?

All Practitioners are given a training manual which outlines all the information of the reader, including how to use and all codes in case of errors.

There is also an online training video

Online training is provided free of charge. The training is provided by a product expert from Nouveau Healthcare. Once you purchase the reader and test strips, we will book the training in.

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

The sensitivity of 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 of 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 and all showed negative results; suggesting 100% specificity. No interference and cross reactivity was observed with Bilirubin, Triglycerides, Cholesterol, Vitamin B12 and Vitamin C.
