"The Lactate Scout Sport" is an advanced portable device used to measure lactate levels in blood samples. Lactate is a compound produced when the body produces energy without sufficient oxygen, such as during intense physical activity. Measuring lactate levels is of great interest to athletes, trainers and medical professionals as it provides insight into exercise intensity, the degree of physical exertion and the body's ability to break down lactic acid.
The Lactate Scout Sport is designed to quickly and accurately measure lactate levels in capillary blood, which is usually obtained by a small puncture in the fingertip. The device uses enzymatic technology to determine lactate levels and provides instant results on the display. This makes it a valuable tool for optimising training programmes and monitoring athletes' physical performance.
