***Attention Lactate Pro
Test Strips for the Lactate Pro are Still Available***
It has recently come
to our attention that certain competitors are telling
current Lactate Pro customers that they will no longer be
able to obtain strips for their meters. This is absolutely
false. While Arkray has discontinued production of the first
generation Lactate Pro meter, given the ongoing demand by
EMS and practitioners they will continue to produce strips
through at least May of 2018.
Approximately 5 years ago, Arkray began
developing a replacement analyzer which was released in
Japan in April 2012 as the Lactate Pro 2. When they began
the design of this analyzer they did not have the medical
market in mind opting instead to focus on the sports
training segment. Unfortunately, this new analyzer proved
unsuitable for medical use due to certain performance
shortcomings, i.e., accurate readings can only be obtained
as long as the hematocrit and SpO2 of the patient are both
within normal range. Any analyzer designated for medical use
must be self-correcting as is the case with the current
Lactate Pro. As a result, the Lactate Pro 2 will not be
released for sale in USA or Canada since FDA certification
will still be required even for devices designated for
sports use only. There is a possibility that Arkray will develop another analyzer over the
next 2-3 years that will meet medical requirements. In the
meantime, please feel free to contact us regarding
alternative medically approved methods for measuring
The first generation Lactate Pro is still the only handheld
lactate analyzer that is FDA CLIA-waived for clinical
medical use. As a result we continue to receive requests
for used analyzers in good working condition and would be
interested in acquiring any that have been taken out of
service. Please contact us directly at 800.330.1522 or by
email if you have units you would like to sell. If you
would like to be added to our waiting list for used units,
please send your contact information to
