The PFT Systems Diff is specially designed to determine:

Static and dynamic lung volumes Spirometry / Flow-Volume
Diffusion capacity single breath DLCO/TLCO
Alveolar volume
FRC with gas dilution and static lung volumes.
Pulmonary gas distribution during expiration

Comfort for your patients and for you:

The Apnea Time is often a real handicap for COPD-Patients therefore we offer short breath-hold time option, interruptible down to 6 seconds.
The PFT Systems Diff records the respiratory pressure during a breath holding manoeuvre of the Single Breath Diffusion test  (Monitoring of alveolar pressure).
The exhaled gas concentration-slopes give important information about the test validity and about the uneven gas distribution into the respiratory airways.
Even with Alveolar Volumes down to 0.8 Liters, Diffusion Capacity Measurement is possible, thus the PFT Systems Diff is well suited for restrictive syndromes and Pediatrics.
“Fast-Space balancing method” is used for effective FRC, RV, TLC determination by CH4 gas dilution techniques

Cost effectiveness:

No working costs, no need for disposable products or accessories.
Cheap Preventive Maintenance Contract proposed for 2 years and special conditions for 5 years.
The Diffusion100 needs only one technical revision a year.
No gas loss  for calibration or flushing patient circuit between tests.
Automatic calibration of reference and diffusion-gases happens during the inspiration of the gases.
A 10-liter cylinder (@150 bar) stands for ca. 300 to 500 tests.

FEV0.75, FEV1, FEV3, FEV6, FVC, PEF, FEV0.75/VC, FEV0.75/FVC, FEV1/VC, FEV1/FVC, FEV3/VC, FEV3/FVC, FEV0.75/FEV6, FEV1/FEV6, MEF75, MEF50, MEF25, MEF25-75, FEF50/VC, FEF50FVC, FET, IC, FIV1, FIVC, PIF, FIV1/FIVC, FIF25, FIF50, FIF75, FIF50/MEF50 etc..

Slow spirometry:

Vital Capacity (VC), IN and Expiratory Reserve Volume (IRV, ERV), Inspiratory Capacity (IC) and Tidal Volume (VT)., Inspiratory Time (Ti), Total Time , (Ttot),Ti/Ttot etc…

User friendly and easy “Report Designer” 

As far as report documentation is concerned, you will be supported by the new MEC PFT Report Server program, which provides you several handy report tools on the basis on which you can clearly structure and tailor each reporting to your individual needs and integrate your headings and hospital or practice logos.  MEC PFT report can be evaluated on screen before printed on paper and/or forwarded by email. The reports may be designed directly in Microsoft Word and saved as Word documents or as Acrobat PDF format. Of course the results may be exported to medical files (HIS) with protocols like XML, TXT, HL7 etc..

The idea of providing its customers with the best and the most up-to-date technology is the workhouse of MEC Group. That is why it has conceived new devices including hydrogen and methane detection with carbon dioxide control. Lactotest 202 “Evolution” allows you to upgrade your existing Lactotest 102 hydrogen breath test monitor with methane and carbon dioxide at lower costs. Thus, you have a full system comparable to the lactotest 202 “Xtend” in terms of performance.

Upgrade your Lactotest 102 with Lactotest 202 Evolution in order to have a full system H2, CH4, CO2.


Carbon dioxide concentration measurement (CO2) is an essential part in diagnosis of intestinal disorders to control the results. During the sample collection,patients are asked to blow in a specific kit. However, it is not sure that the expired air is alveolar and contains a normal amount of carbon dioxide. Therefore, Lactotest 202 “control”optimizes results by correcting the gas sample soncentration in function of CO2 concentration.Note that you can also upgrade the lactotest 202 “control” with methane in order to have a full system comparable with the Lactotest 202 “Xtend”.


Methane analysis (CH4) allows you to extend your results to people who do not only produce hydrogen, but who also produce methane. Thus, methane detection enhances accuracy in measuring intestinal disorders. Lactotest 202 “Xtend”gives you the most advanced diagnosis instrument at the current time because it combines the three types of analysers for hydrogen, methane and carbon dioxide and it includes an automatic sampling pump and flushing system. All this makes of Lactotest 202 an indispensable tool for your lab. In addition, each lactotest instrument may benefit of an extended warranty up to five years.

Our infra red gas analysers for methane and carbon dioxide take advantage of the most advanced technologies, both at the software and at the hardware level harnessing them to serve your priorities : rapid testing, accuracy and long lifetime.
