RAMP® READER OPERATION PRINCIPLES

  • The RAMP® Reader uses proprietary software to read pre-programmed lot cards
  • The lot card is inserted into the RAMP® Reader prior to running a new test lot and enables the RAMP® Reader to automatically determine the test that is being run and calibrates the RAMP® Reader on a lot-specific basis. No user calibration required!
    • The RAMP® Reader rejects used or expired cartridges or insertion of a new cartridge without previous lot card entry
  • The test cartridge is prepared, as per the Instructions for Use, and inserted into the RAMP® Reader
    • If the RAMP® Reader detects any errors, a clear error message will display on-screen instead of reporting a wrong result
  • The RAMP® Reader calculates the RAMP® Ratio to correct for sources of variability; time to result is ~15 minutes
