The latest blood gas analyzers on the market from Instrumentation Laboratory, Radiometer America, Nova Biomedical, and Siemens Healthineers.
Available from Instrumentation Laboratory, the GEM Premier ChemSTAT is a whole-blood analyzer for rapid basic metabolic panel (BMP) testing. Designed for the point of care, it delivers lab-quality results in 70 seconds, from venous or arterial samples. With a menu developed for the emergency department, actionable BMP results allow for rapid risk stratification and expedited time to treatment. (See image above.)
The GEM Premier 5000 system with iQM2 from Instrumentation Laboratory rapidly analyzes heparinized whole-blood samples including blood gases, electrolytes, metabolites, and CO-Oximetry at the point of care. These parameters can assist in supporting management of respiratory impairment, such as acute respiratory disease syndrome.1 iQM2 provides continuous monitoring of the analytical process; before, during, and after each sample measurement in real-time.
The Siemens Healthineers epoc Blood Analysis System is a handheld, wireless solution with complete blood gas, basic metabolic panel, and hematocrit and lactate on a single room temperature-stable test card, delivering patient-side results in less than 1 minute. It aids in supporting COVID-19 response efforts, where blood gas testing plays a critical role in managing infected patients.
