Here are a few reasons why You made the best choice for your canine testing with the Cube Vet Health Screening System!.
This is a very important question! I think the best way to present it is with a list of benefits you will receive with the Cube Vet Health Screening System.
Will I have to replace lamps?
No! The light source is internal and never needs replacing. LED technology is inherently very reliable due in part to the very low level of power need to illuminate it. Also if you have any kind of question or problem we offer you total technical support WHEN YOU NEED IT!
Is the Cube Vet Health Screening System Accurate?
We get this question all the time! The quick answer is YES. What we find when talking to folks that call us with this question is that the real question they are asking is - "Will the Quick Scan 1000 give me results that will accurately tell me when the best time to breed or inseminate?" That, in fact, is the real question. The answer to that question is also an emphatic YES. SEE the next question for more details.
Will the Cube Vet Health Screening System give me the same results as my remote testing lab?
YES and NO! Let me explain! What most folks do not know is that the IDEXX, Immulite 1000, Mini Vidas, and many other systems will run the same Progesterone sample and come up with very different results. THIS IS EXPECTED! Is this a problem? NO and here is why.
Some systems are florescent and some are chemiluminescence and others use a photometer. The method of measurement (and the reagents) are very different hence we get different numbers on the same sample running on the two types of analyzers.
The Cube Vet Health Screening System has been correlated with the Mini Vidas and Immulite 1000 which is the reference method for the IDEXX labs.
The calibration of the test kits (using the Rif card in the test kit box) is simple and automatic when you load the RIF card. The timing charts sent with the lot are downloadable here on the site use this data to give you an easy to read chart for timing.
Example: if you go to your vet and they are running an IDEXX system then you have your test run on a Mini Vidas you will see very different results that may cause you to get your timing solution's wrong if you don't adjust for the method differences. This is very easily done with no pain or effort. We have you covered with our Progesterone Timing Chart that is downloadable under the Download and chart section and below. SEE the NEXT Question for all the details.
How does MRDS standardize the results I get from my lab to know just when I should breed?
This is a very good question. As mentioned in the last question all the lab systems used for testing will give you different test results when doing your Progesterone testing on the same sample. To make sure that everyone getting results from their testing lab knows how to interpret the results they get with the Cube Vet Health Screening System we include with every system a Progesterone Timing Chart that tells you just what progesterone results you should be looking for to start your breeding! We also send you in each test kit box a test range insert that gives you the abnormal and normal value for your dog's results on all of the other tests available. We do all the work running hundreds of sample comparisons on many major systems and then we set up the correlation factors so you get your breeding timing right every time! As a Service company, MRDS has every aspect of your purchase covered. No one else can say that.
How does MR Diagnostic Services support the Cube Vet 1 year warranty?

Do I need to calibrate my Cube Vet Health Screening System?
The Calibration process for your Cube Vet Health Screening system is very simple! Your kit lot of Progesterone test kits come with a calibration RID Card. These cards store the "Calibration Curve" for that lot of Progesterone test kits. Sooooo All you need do is drop the RIF Card onto the reader on the top of the unit. The RID is automatically read and the lot calibration is done.
The Cube V is easy to run. To get off to a great running start we suggest you take a few moments to watch the video training available below.

The Cube vet system is easy to use and very fast in getting you your results. There is one step in the sampling that needs to be understood to get the same great results thousands of Veterinary labs all over the world get. its simple just check out the videos below.
The Cube Vet has a total test range of 1.2 to 20. Since the Cube vet is a highly accurate chemistry analyzer these ranges take two volumes to reach. If you are testing for values up to 8 you need to run a 40uL sample size. 40 uL sample size ranges are 1.2 to 8 will cover well beyond ovulation. If you expect your sample will be higher then 8 or it your 40uL sample gave you a >8 results then you need to switch to the 5 uL sample mode. The 5 uL sample mode will give you the extended range of 8-20. Above 20 you will receive the results as >20. The video below will show you how to run a 5 uL sample (range 8-20). Its simple and the video below spells it out in detail. Make sure you download the timing chart on this page to best understand your results. Let us know if you need help. Just email us at email@example.com

Your start up kit will come with two (2) pipettors. One is a 20-200 adjustable pipettor that is set to 40 uL for the 1.2-8 range testing. We have included a second 5uL pipettor for you to use when you run the 5 uL shown below for the 8-20 test range.

The Cube Vet requires only one pipetting action. Please watch the video below since incorrect pipetting is the #1 reason for questionable results. Super important so please watch! Your start up kit will come with two (2) pipettors. One is a 10-100 adjustable pipettor that is set to 40 uL for the 1.2-8 range testing. We have included a second .5-10uL pipettor for you to set to 5 uL and use when you run the 5 uL for the 6-20 test range. As you can see the more accurate you are with this single pipetting actions the more precise your testing will be. SO TAKE THE TIME TO WATCH THIS VIDEO CLOSELY.
