How it Does It
  1. Identify the correct product using the product bar code or by selecting it manually on the CheckMate 3.
  2. Program selection ensures that the correct test parameters are set and the right user defined questions
    about operator name, batch number etc are asked.
  3. Insert the syringe through the septum and into the package.
  4. After insertion the CheckMate 3 can either start the test automatically, or manually at the touch of a button.
  5. During the test process a small gas sample is drawn into the analyser.
  6. The result appears immediately on the display, giving the operator an instant indication of a passed or failed result.
  7. Test data can then either be sent to a central database, stored in the unit or printed on the optional printer.
