Vanc Pharmaceuticals is proud to offer a growing number of innovative products and services to create value beyond prescriptions for the rapidly changing pharmacy business. One such initiative is HealthTab™.
HealthTab is a proven point-of-care testing (POCT) system designed to support pharmacists in their evolving role as frontline health care providers. It empowers patients to prevent or better manage chronic disease by directly measuring and monitoring key biomarkers, such as cholesterol and triglycerides, blood sugar, liver and kidney function and electrolytes. The system is remarkably simple to operate and the analysis is fast, lab-accurate and requires just a few drops of blood from a finger prick. Patients can print their results in-store and access them securely online at any time.
At the core of the HealthTab system is the Piccolo Xpress® analyzer by Abaxis. Originally designed by NASA to test the health of its astronauts, the Piccolo is one of the most highly regarded point-of-care instruments in the field. It is currently trusted worldwide by hospitals, medical clinics and physician offices, government-funded screening programs, and the US Military and Foreign Embassies to deliver accurate blood chemistry results right onsite.
In addition to a Health Canada Class III certification, the device has been credentialed by the Clinical and Laboratory Standards Institute (CLSI), the Joint Commission on the Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO) and the Cholesterol Reference Method Laboratory Network (CRMLN). Now this technology is coming to Canadian pharmacies exclusively through VancPharm.
