NC-stat® DPNCheck® Overview

  • Fast, accurate and quantitative test that may be used to evaluate peripheral neuropathies such as diabetic peripheral neuropathy (DPN)
  • Quantitative results - measures sural nerve conduction velocity and response amplitude - standard biomarkers for asymptomatic and clinical peripheral neuropathies
  • Sensitive and specific for peripheral neuropathies including  (DPN)7-8, and predictive of its complications8
  • Accurate technology - based on the established and validated NC-stat® Technology1-6
  • Straightforward clinical interpretation
  • Compact and ergonomic hand-held device designed for ease-of-use
  • Single patient use biosensors
  • Cost effective testing
