Radiometer has announced the commercial launch of its CE-marked point-of-care tests for creatinine and urea, the latest additions to the ABL90 FLEX PLUS blood gas analyser’s test menu. The versatile ABL90 FLEX PLUS is the only compact blood gas analyser to offer such an extensive range of critical care parameters – blood gas, electrolytes, metabolites and co-oximetry.
It provides rapid analysis of 19 parameters from as little as 65 µL blood, with results available in just 35 seconds. A breakthrough for point-of-care testing, the newly extended panel is already benefiting patient care in emergency departments at Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Woolwich; University Hospital of Lewisham; Wexham Park Hospital, Slough; and Queen’s Hospital, Romford.
The addition of creatinine and urea to the ABL90 FLEX PLUS analyser’s test menu makes this device ideal for point-of-care testing, proving fast results that allow caregivers to make clinical decisions faster and more accurately. This enables a more proactive approach to treatment, helping to improve patient flow and reduce waiting times in emergency and critical care settings.
