Chemistry Analyzer Pointcare® cM4
SMALL AND LIGHT MEGA IN MIGHT
Small in size yet big on accuracy, reliability and reproducibility, the MNCHIP Pointcare can deliver real-time blood chemistry diagnostic information with only 100μl blood sample, improving the efficiency of operations and providing 24/7 standby on-site diagnostics.
Features & Benefits
- State-of-the-art technology ensures accurate results every time
The MNCHIP Pointcare chemistry analyzer can deliver precise results specificity comparable to expensive high-throughput analyzers.
- Reliable RQC system reduces errors
RQC system in MNCHIP chemistry analyzer provides continuous quality control on every run to eliminate the potential for erroneous results, so even new users can be confident of getting accurate results.
Small and light, mega in might. With the launch of the TIANGONG Space Station, PM4 has continued to offer astronauts blood chemistry tests in orbit since June 2021, again showing its constantly reliable performance and high adaptability, even in extremely tough environments.
- Load sample, insert disc and read results in 3 easy steps.
- Preinstalled reagent discs deliver complete results within 7-10 minutes for each run. The MNCHIP Pointcare chemistry analyzer and reagents even obtain EC Certificate for Self-testing in Europe.
- Very small sample needed–only 100 microliters of whole blood, serum or plasma to get up to 19 parameters.
- Factory-calibrated information in QR code ensures accuracy of tests and ease of use.
Born from aerospace technology, MNCHIP reagent disc is a completely self-contained disposable chemistry panel designed to meet various testing needs. Just 3 drops of whole blood are required to deliver up to 19 precise results.

Our microfluidics based blood chemistry device was derived from aerospace technology, which is also used in today’s aerospace industry. After five years of rigorous ground testing, Pointcare M will be installed on the Chinese space station launched in 2022 to provide daily blood chemistry tests for astronauts in orbit.
The analyzer is a portable spectrophotometer. The optical system consists of a xenon arc stroboscopiclamp and a beam-splitter/detector capable of reading nine wavelengths. A heater maintains the disc at 37±0.2°C during the reaction portion of the analysis. The reagent disc is developed based on microfluidic technology. It is an 8 cm diameter consumable containing all the required diluent and dry reagents to perform a panel of tests. The disc contains 30 cuvettes that will be filled with diluted plasma or diluent. The cuvettes have different pathlengths to accommodate different reagent sensitivities and analyte concentrations. Pre-measured, lyophilized reagent beads for each chemistry in the panel are placed in the cuvettes at the time of manufacture. To perform a panel of tests, the operator applies around 100μl whole blood directly into a disc. Using centrifugal and capillary forces, the disc meters the required amount of blood, separates the red cells, meters the plasma, meters the diluent, mixes the fluids, distributes the fluid to the reaction cuvettes and mixes the reagents and the diluted plasma in the cuvettes. The analyzer monitors the reactions simultaneously using nine wave-lengths, calculates the results from the absorbance data, and reports the results on the screen and on a convenient thermal roll-tape printer.
