"The MX3 hydration test unit has proven to be both easy to use and much less invasive than traditional methods whilst delivering the results in a timely manner.

The App is a great visual aid to personnel to get a clear idea of where they are at with their hydration as well as their previous results all at one time."

Portable

Use the MX3 LAB anytime, anywhere. Simply take a quick saliva or sweat sample on the field or in the locker room.

Reliable

MX3 is scientifically proven to measure biomarkers from saliva as accurately as a laboratory osmometer.

Immediate

Your hydration level is recorded within seconds of taking a saliva measurement, and results immediately upload to your app.

Reusable

The LAB can be used over and over by one person or entire teams. Just replace the disposable test strip after each measurement.

Simple

Test strips load easily into the LAB, and saliva measurements are made by simply placing the strip on the tip of the tongue.

Flexible

The LAB can be used with or without Bluetooth or Internet access. Measurements can be taken anytime for immediate readings, then stored for later upload.
