Lactate Pro Notice of Discontinuation
Although Arkray ceased production of the North American approved Lactate Pro analyzer over 3 years ago, they have continued to support their many current users with test strips. However, as of December 2018 they have ended production of all consumables for the first generation instrument. We have made a large purchase from this final manufacturing run in order to supply our customers with product for as long as we have it available. The information we have received is that these strips will arrive with 9 to 10 month dating.
You may be aware that prior to the discontinuation of the original Lactate Pro, Arkray began manufacturing a second-generation model for the overseas market called the Lactate Pro 2. Although the analyzer has been available for several years, the company to date has not indicated when or if it will be released in North America.
We would like to express our gratitude to all of our clients who have supported us and the Lactate Pro for so many years. At this time we have not identified an alternative analyzer that we feel delivers the accuracy and precision so many of you have come to rely on. Should a suitable product avail itself, rest assured we will post it to our site and contact you directly.
