The i-STAT 1 is a handheld blood analyzer that can measure blood gases, electrolytes, biochemistry, lactate, coagulation factors (ACT, PT/INR), and quantitative cardiac biomarkers (CK-MB, Ctni, BNP).
The i-STAT 1 operates with either 2 alkaline or rechargeable 9-volt batteries and has a bright, illuminated display. It prints out measurements on a thermal printer via infrared communication.
The analyzer has a variety of measurement options available, making it a versatile tool for medical professionals. One of the benefits of the i-STAT 1 is its ability to store up to 5,000 measurements in its memory, which can be easily recalled by the user at any time.
The analyzer is always ready for use and generates results quickly, without the need for calibration.
