Checkit -  Automated monitoring and work management software

Blog

Checkit, the smart wireless food safety system, is being picked up by leading publications in the food industry from around the world.

In this month’s Optometry Today, optometrist Scott Mackie talks about the benefits that MPS II has brought to his two practices in Scotland. Six months ago, he acquired the macular pigment screening device and he says that he has already made his money back several times over.

Food safety is on New Yorkers’ minds, as 200 diners and workers at tapas restaurant Alta have had precautionary vaccinations against Hepatitis A after it was revealed that an employee may have passed on the infection when serving a dessert ordered by around 450 customers.

MPS II is a screening device which helps eyecare professionals spot the signs of age-related macular degeneration in their patients. There are immediate benefits in installing the device in the practice, both for the patient and for the clinicians themselves.

Visitors to Checkit’s stand at this year’s Food Safety Summit have the chance to win a Checkit system worth $2099.

Elektron’s MPS II Macular Pigment screener, launching at Optrafair on the Topcon stand, is the most advanced device available for identifying patients who need to improve their diet and lifestyle to reduce their risk of AMD.

New research published this week has linked cholesterol levels to sight loss – showing that simple eye drops could be used to treat the UK’s biggest cause of blindness, age-related macular degeneration (AMD).

Age-related macular degeneration is a debilitating disease which can lead to loss of sight. What’s the difference between the two types – wet and dry – and how can the new screening device MPS II help delay and even prevent the onset of the disease?

“Even the world’s best restaurants and food producers are not immune to the problems of foodborne illness,” writes Checkit product manager Martin Nash in Harnessing Technology To Help Prevent Foodborne Illness, an article published this month in Food Product Design.

Checkit harnesses the latest wireless technology to help owners of restaurants, cafes and fast-food outlets make their food safety processes more efficient – and reduce their costs.

The inventors and patent holders of the updated MPS 9000 macular pigment screener, the MPS II, have written an article for Optician as a rebuttal of a personal viewpoint ‘Measuring macular pigment’ by Beatty and Nolan in an article published on 15th February 2013.

We’re looking forward to showcasing the new Checkit wireless food safety monitoring solution at this year’s Food Safety Summit, which takes place at the Baltimore Convention Center from 30 April to 2 May.
