Three Simple Steps to Using the epoc Blood Gas Analyser

Operating the epoc Blood Analyser is simple. A disposable epoc Test Card is inserted into the reader and an automatic calibration cycle is performed. A small sample of fresh whole blood (92μl) is then injected into the sample entry port on the test card. The reader then analyses the blood and approximately 35 seconds after sample injection, results are displayed on the epoc Host.


The epoc Blood Gas Analyser has four components: the reader, the host, the test cards and the printer.
