Abbott Point of Care (APOC), a $550 million division of Abbott (NYSE: ABT), enables health care professionals to accurately achieve real-time, lab-quality diagnostic results at the point of care within minutes. Testing at the point of care enables health care professionals to make rapid triage and treatment decisions when diagnosing a patient's condition or monitoring a treatment response. By simplifying the testing process, clinicians can focus on what matters most-caring for the patient.
Abbott Point of Care's i-STAT Analyzer is a handheld system that is used with single-use i-STAT test cartridges. Together they form the i-STAT System*-a blood analysis system that provides health care professionals with the information they need to rapidly make treatment decisions. Patient-side testing with the i-STAT System is as easy as inserting 2 or 3 drops of blood into the cartridge, inserting the cartridge into the handheld, and then viewing test results in as little as 2 minutes for most cartridges. Test results are uploaded automatically-delivered wirelessly with the i-STAT Wireless or directly when the i-STAT handheld is placed in a downloader. The i-STAT System eliminates process steps and handoffs to help reduce the incidence of errors and promote patient safety.
Hospitals and clinics in more than 100 countries around the world depend on the i-STAT System in critical care situations. For more information about Abbott Point of Care and the i-STAT System, please visit https://www.pointofcare.abbott.
