by Jeremy Linder Lab Equipment Supplier
The Abbott i-STAT 1 blood analyzer can run a variety of critical tests at the patient’s bedside and provide lab quality results within minutes. 

The Abbott i-STAT portable clinical analyzer is a Point Of Care analyzer designed for critical care tests such as blood gases, electrolytes, chemistries, coagulation, hematology, glucose, and cardiac markers (cTnI) at the patient's bedside. This easy-to-use, handheld operates with the advanced technology of single-use i-STAT test cartridges. There are a number of cartridges testing different combinations of analytes, thereby eliminating the need for different analyzers. It requires only two or three drops of blood for testing. Samples are processed immediately and provide lab-quality results in 2 minutes. 

The i-STAT system is capable of storing up to 50 patient records and permits on-screen viewing of test results. Results can be printed out at any time by directly linking the analyzer to a small infrared printer.

The i-STAT handheld's screen prompts users with step-by-step instructions during the entire testing process. In order to perform a test, simply draw two or three drops of blood into the cartridge, close the cartridge and then insert it into the handheld analyzer.  Results are reported in just minutes.
