i-STAT Portable Clinical Analyser


The Abbott i-STAT portable clinical analyser is a true Point Of Care analyser designed to be used at the patient's bedside for critical care tests such as blood gases, electrolytes, metabolites and coagulation. There are a number of cartridges testing different combinations of analytes. This single testing system  eliminates the need for different analysers.

Only a few drops of whole blood are required for testing, between 65 and 95 µl. Samples are processed immediately and provide lab-quality results in 2 minutes making the i-STAT analyser quick and easy to use.
