The i-STAT® System: Advanced Handheld and Test Cartridge Blood Analysis System that Delivers Lab-quality Results

Every day, health care professionals face an expanding set of challenges, working in increasingly complex and stressful environments with limited resources and constrained budgets. That's why it's important that diagnostic blood analysis processes be streamlined to ensure patients receive the most effective and efficient care.

The advanced biosensor technology of the i-STAT System enables patient-side blood testing, so that health care professionals can access real-time, lab-quality results within minutes, rather than hours. By accelerating the availability of diagnostic test results, the i-STAT System provides health care professionals with the information they need to make treatment decisions sooner, which may lead to enhanced quality of care and improved system efficiency.

Lightweight, portable, and easy to use, the i-STAT System features single-use disposable cartridges that perform a broad menu of the most commonly performed diagnostic tests, including cardiac markers, blood gases, chemistries and electrolytes, lactate, coagulation, and hematology.

  1. Apply a few drops of blood
  2. Insert cartridge
