Abstract

This study aimed to compare the performance of a new portable lactate analyser against other standard laboratory methods in three conditions, normal (20±1.3°C; 40±5% RH), hot (40±2.5°C; 40±5% RH), and humid (20±1.1°C; 82±6% RH) conditions. Seven healthy males, ([Mean ± SE]: age, 26.3±1.3 yr; height, 177.7±1.6 cm; weight, 77.4±0.9 kg, VO2-max, 56.1±1.9 ml×kg×min-1) undertook a maximal cycle ergometry test to exhaustion in the three conditions. Blood was taken every 3 min at the end of each stage and was analysed using the Lactate Pro LT-1710®, the Accusport®, the Analox
