What is the VHC Vitamin D Test Kit?

The VHC Quantitative Vitamin-D Test currently allows a practitioner and client to see 25-OH Vitamin D results within 15 minutes, from a simple finger prick blood sample. 

The test strips in the pack allow for the sample (finger prick blood) collection

The VHC-Reader (Sold Separately) is a high precision optical reader for lateral flow test devices. A special LED lightning enables to read the test a control lines intensity, that is in direct relation with amount of target molecules (Vitamin D) caught by highly specific gold labelled antibodies.

The VHC-Reader is programmed by a RFID card that contains the test specific data and the LOT specific quantitative calibration curve. This enables a quantification accuracy identical to those of routine remote labs.

This portable and compact device, enables any practitioner within their clinic to provide, convenient, straightforward quantitative Vitamin D level results within 15 minutes.

If the test identifies a Vitamin D deficiency, the quantitative result from the reader then enables a practitioner to provide a personalised, accurate calculation of the amount of vitamin D3 I.U. needed through a targeted diet or supplementation plan to achieve a good blood level without any risk of an overdose or an under prescribing of the amount their client really needs.

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.
