What does an i-stat test for?
The i-STAT is a handheld, in vitro analyser designed to be used at the patient’s bedside (point-of-care) for testing arterial, venous or capillary whole blood.

How does Abbott i-STAT work?
The i-STAT system uses a single disposable cartridge. The cartridge, which has been filled with fresh blood, is placed into a hand-held analyzer for analysis. The results are printed and also transmitted to a computer where they can be stored and transferred to another system for charting.
How long are i-STAT cartridges good for?
i-STAT cartridges have a 14 day room temperature expiry except for CG8+, EG6+, CG4+ blood gas cartridges which have a 2 month room temperature expiry. Mark the cartridge box or cartridge pouches with the room temperature expiry date.
Do i-STAT cartridges need to be refrigerated?
Cartridges may be stored at room temperature (18 to 30°C or 64 to 86°F) for 14 days. Cartridges should not be returned to the refrigerator once they have been at room temperature, and should not be exposed to temperatures above 30°C (86°F). If the pouch has been punctured, the cartridge should not be used.
How does the i-STAT measure blood glucose?
Glucose is measured amperometrically. Oxidation of glucose, catalyzed by the enzyme glucose oxidase, produces hydrogen peroxide (H2O2). The liberated H2O2 is oxidized at the electrode to produce a current proportional to the sample glucose concentration.
How long are Istat cartridges good for at room temperature?
What is a STAT 1 analyzer used for?
1 ANALYZER INTRODUCTION The i-STAT 1 Analyzer is used in conjunction with i-STAT cartridges for the simultaneous quantitative determination of specific analytes in whole blood. Refer to the Cartridge and Test Information section of this manual for information on analytes that can be measured using i-STAT cartridges.
What equipment is used in the i-stat1 analyzer?
The i-STAT1 Analyzer is capable of using the Abbott MediSense Precision PCx or PCx Plus Blood Glucose Test Strips. A dedicated desktop computer with the i-STAT Central Data Station program provides the primary information management capabilities for the i-STAT System.
