Reflotron Creatine Kinase (CK) Testing

The Use of Creatine Kinase (CK) in Professional Sports Science.

Muscle degeneration is the process where the contents of muscle cells enter the bloodstream. The majority of Creatine Kinase (CK) usually exists in muscle, therefore an increase in CK levels indicates that the muscles have been damaged. Levels of Creatine Kinase and appropriate baseline levels vary for each sport.

Creatine Kinase (CK) levels are normally elevated for 48 hours post injury, accurately identifying affected athletes. It is therefore vital for CK levels to be measured as part of routine performance analysis.

In addition to accurate diagnosis, the use of Creatine Kinase (CK) helps to monitor athletes during rehabilitation programmes assisting the process of recovery. The Reflotron Analyser provides an accurate measure of total CK as well as wide range of additional tests such as Uric Acid for oxidative stress. An essential tool for analysis and recovery, the Reflotron Analyser is used by organisations such as GB Rowing, Northampton Saints, Liverpool FC, Manchester City FC and Rangers FC.

  • Simple to use.
  • Accurate results in 2 -3 minutes.
  • Tests for 17 clinical chemistry parameters including CK from whole blood, serum or plasma.
  • Proven performance compared to lab results.
  • Small, light instrument requires little bench space.
