Saliva Hydration Testing Simplifies Reporting

MX3 improves testing frequency, cleanliness and comfort for geologists and miners.

BHP is a world-leading global resources company based in Melbourne, Australia. The company manages more than 80,000 employees and contractors worldwide. Below is feedback from a response coordinator for BHP Geoscience after giving his teams MX3 technology.

Improved testing frequency and buy-in

“We have 16 [MX3 PRO] units in use in our department alone, and I’ve helped a few other work groups with getting them and how to use / set up with their teams, and they’ve been brilliant.

Some of our contracting partners have been getting them too and are connected to our same dashboard with tags showing company/team they're from, so it saves them from having to send a report of their hydration stats (from urine testing as previously done). So it’s been a big win all around. [MX3 is] also great for diversity/inclusion, as no specific locations or gendered bathrooms are necessary for testing (and just so much more sanitary/safe).

Removing the hygiene risks and paperwork / data-entry requirements has really improved the frequency of testing and buy-in from team members. The excellent and quick support from MX3 has been fantastic!”

Ryan Stampfli, Field Response Coordinator, BHP Geoscience

Ready to Order?

If your company is ready to start testing and tracking hydration for employees, MX3 Diagnostics can help you find the right equipment and products.

First, determine how you’ll use the MX3 PRO. Are you planning to test employees before and after work, so you can see how their hydration levels are affected on the worksite? Or will you be testing employees mid-day only on heat-sensitive projects? Hydration testing can ensure safety of employees in a variety of settings, and tracking hydration levels can help managers spot and prevent dehydration risks. Determine your schedule and plans for employee hydration testing, and then you can determine the products you’ll use.

To start, you’ll need at least one MX3 PRO Hydration Testing System (HTS). One PRO can test multiple employees, but you’ll want to have at least one available for every site or site manager. The HTS can be ordered as a single, or in packs of 3 or 5. Each HTS comes with a test strip dispenser, charging cables and a travel case. Boxes of test strips are included as well, but you’ll need to order more in the future.

Test strips are used once and discarded, so plan to have a test strip for each person and each measurement. So if you’re measuring an employee before and after work, you’ll need two test strips each day times the number of employees you’re testing. Test strips are sold in packs of 40, available in singles, 5 pack bundles, and 50 pack bundles.
