Once you get the test strip inserted into the Quick Scan Mini the incubation time is 15 min to result.
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 needed 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 Quick Scan Mini 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 Mini 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 Quick Scan Mini give me the same results as my remote testing lab?
YES and NO. Let me explain! What most folks do not know is that all progesterone testing systems in vet labs, 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 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.
Example: if you go to your vet and they are running the veterinarian's preferred 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 solutions 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 the full color timing chart included in PDF form here on this page ready for download and we also send one with the Quick Scan Mini when it ships to you.
Use the Timing Chart to time your breeding. That is all you will need. Do not compare your results to your vet unless they have a Quick Scan Mini they will not match. The timing chart has been set up after extensive testing.
