MODERN TECHNOLOGY FOR CYSTIC FIBROSIS DIAGNOSIS. The Macroduct system consists of the Webster Sweat Inducer, the Macroduct Sweat Collector and the Sweat-Chek Analyzer. Together they have revolutionized the sweat test for cystic fibrosis, and have brought the hope of early intervention against this scourge to thousands of CF patients around the world. The Model 3700 has integral fail-safe circuitry to limit the applied voltage and warn of open circuits. Current is brought up slowly to full power and then reduced slowly at completion of iontophoresis to minimize patient discomfort. Two standard 9-volt batteries supply power. Pilogel Iontophoretic Discs are unique gel reservoirs of pilocarpinium ions that are simple and safe to use in the iontophoretic stimulation of sweat. There are no electrolyte solutions to prepare or to keep track of, and no messy electrolyte pads that must be saturated with separate solutions. Instead, a Pilogel disc is inserted into each of the recessed stainless steel electrodes, which are then attached to the patient.
