Fingraph®, a fingertip blood sampler that conveniently measures sodium and potassium electrolyes in just one minute, debuts in Japan on August 6

  • Sodium and potassium electrolyte concentrations in the blood can be measured easily in just one minute
  • A compact device that allows convenient testing at hospital out-patient visits, and for patients in-hospital or at home
  • Test requires only a small sample of blood obtained by pricking the patient's fingertip. This reduces pain and burden compared to ordinary blood testing using a syringe, as well as the burden on physicians and nurses

Otsuka Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd. (head office: Tokyo, Japan; president and representative director: Taro Iwamoto) introduced Fingraph in Japan on August 6th, 2013.
