Your blood gas analyzer for point-of-care testing
65 μL of blood
The ABL90 FLEX PLUS blood gas analyzer is designed for point-of-care testing in busy clinical environments, such as the ED, ICU, NICU or the delivery room where fast results from a very small blood sample are vitally important to make critical diagnostic decisions.
The ABL90 FLEX PLUS analyzer gives you reliable results in only 35 seconds on 19 parameters – blood gas, electrolytes, metabolites and co-oximetry – from a syringe, capillary tube or test tube.
All on one blood sample of only 65 µL.
This extended panel of critical parameters within blood gas testing gives you more clinical insight here and now, allowing you to act on results and make life-saving diagnostic decisions.
Fast and accurate test results are crucial to overcome the challenge of overcrowding in the emergency department (ED).
Creatinine results at the point of care allow you to identify patients at risk of acute kidney injury (AKI) as well as to quickly assess your patient's kidney status before CT or MRI scans to determine if there’s a risk of contrast-induced nephropathy [1-3].
Also, creatinine and urea results can help you assess dehydration as well as identify the origin of gastrointestinal bleeding [1,2].
With creatinine and urea as STAT parameters, you can make your diagnostic decisions faster during triage and improve patient flow in the ED – two significant improvements in processes.
In the ICU, getting the necessary results quicker will enable you to make more informed decisions about the treatment of your patient.
In the ICU, creatinine and urea results can:
In the NICU, at-risk neonates require close surveillance, as undetected changes in blood gas levels may result in severe damage to a neonate's health.
With its special blood-conserving MicroMode measurement for the NICU and delivery rooms, the ABL90 FLEX PLUS blood gas analyzer provides 17 critical parameters - blood gases, glucose, lactate, hemoglobin, bilirubin and more - from a very small sample volume of just 45 µL.
And by adding another 20 µL of blood to your sample, you can now get results on creatinine and urea also.
This means greater focus on neonate safety and comfort.
