What are lactate test strips?

Lactate Plus Test Strips are single-use devices that measure lactate in blood. To perform a test, insert a test strip into the meter and touch the strip to the blood sample. The result is available in 13 seconds and is automatically recorded into the meter’s memory.

How does a lactate analyzer work?

All portable/point-of-care analysers operate on a similar principle; an enzymatic amperometric detection method (Table 1). These devices interpret the electrical signal produced as a result of the reaction between lactate in the blood and the enzyme lactate oxidase on the inserted sensor.

What should lactate levels be?

A normal blood lactate level is 0.5-1 mmol/L. Hyperlactatemia is defined as a persistent, mild to moderately elevated (2-4 mmol/L) lactate level without metabolic acidosis. This can occur with adequate tissue perfusion and tissue oxygenation.

What is lactate testing in athletes?

Lactate is a by-product measured by sport scientists or coaches to evaluate workouts and profile athletes during fitness testing. Lactate is not the cause of fatigue, but does correlate with the decay of work, thus making it a biomarker for performance.

Is lactate testing worth it?

Lactate testing isn’t just for endurance sports—it’s useful for speed and power events, as well as team sports.

What is a normal lactate level?

Normal results range from 4.5 to 19.8 milligrams per deciliter (mg/dL) (0.5 to 2.2 millimoles per liter [mmol/L]). Normal value ranges may vary slightly among different laboratories. Talk to your provider about the meaning of your specific test results.

What lactic acid does?

Lactic acid is an integral part of the human body. It assists in cell respiration, glucose production, and molecule signaling. Contrary to belief, lactic acid does not cause muscle soreness. However, the concentration of lactic acid in the blood does increase during exercise.

What should your lactate level be?
