BRS Device | BQC Redox System

BRS portable device

  • Is the first multiparametric portable device based on electrochemistry designed to measure several REDOX parameters in just one single apparatus
    • Total Antioxidant Capacity
    • Other redox parameters can be easily incorporated into the device –  See next launches for specific industries ans samples at
  • Quick and reliable measurement:  results in less than a minute and with only one drop of sample.
  • Sample native conditions: it does not modify the native conditions of the sample and the colour does not interfere with the measurement in contrast to the classical assay kits.
  • Easily pair to any bluetooth device (Android) – tablet, computer, phone – where all the data is stored
  • The use of strips and BRS accesories is necessary

Compatibility and applications

The BRS device works in:

  • Biomedical samples: plasma, blood, saliva, urine, cell cultures, cell extracts, tissue homogenates. In general, samples can be tested directly.
  • Agri-food samples: juices, drink and beverages, plant and vegetable extracts, among other. This samples should be mixed with BRS Electrolyte.

BRS is a very versatile tool due to its ability to measure in almost every liquid sample and can be used in many fields. See the samples tab to see some protocols and discover all the possibilities!
