Product Overview – The Quantum IV is our flagship product and represents a culmination of more than 30 years of technology and continuous improvement. It is lightweight, easy to use, and fully portable. The instrument case has been designed to withstand almost any environment, ensuring the accuracy and reliability of your Quantum IV data.
Key Features – The Quantum IV features a bright green OLED display that is easy to read and provides all the pertinent information on one screen in your choice of English, Spanish, Italian, or German. Not only does this simplify the testing procedure, but it allows the entire test to be conducted very quickly.
Another key feature of the Quantum IV is its ability to run for more than nine hours continuously, before needing a recharge of its internal lithium ion batteries, so you can be assured that your Quantum IV is always ready to go. Adding to the legendary quality of the RJL Quantum BIA, this robust feature set also includes an ergonomically designed case, ensuring years of reliable service even in the harshest environments.
BC Software – MAC and PC Body Composition software is included with the purchase of your Quantum IV. Resistance and Reactance data from the instrument can be automatically retrieved using the USB cable (while connected to a human subject), or manually entered.
A 500-ohm resistor is included with all the RJL analyzers. This resistor allows you to check the calibration of the analyzer. For an explanation on how to test the calibration of your unit, please refer to the manual.
No, all of the RJL analyzers are designed with isolation transformers that prevent any harmful current from being exposed to the subject while being tested.
Yes, but only when climate changes are extreme.
The Food and Drug Administration regulates all BIA devices as class II medical devices. Manufacturers must receive clearance from the FDA to market a class II device. Please visit the FDA website for more information on RJL registration and clearances. ( FDA Website – search for RJL Systems under Applicant Name or Owner Name.)
So long as you take care of your analyzer, it can last a long time. RJL has many of their customers (from as far back as 1980) using their originally purchased analyzers.
No, anyone can operate the RJL analyzers. It is helpful, however, to read the supplied manuals first.
In addition, anyone planning on using an analyzer in a clinical setting should practice applying the electrodes and collecting the resistance and reactance values to ensure that they are able to reliably and repeatably place the electrodes in the same spots on the skin every time.
