Instrumentation Laboratory (Bedford, MA, USA) unveiled its latest innovation, the GEM Premier ChemSTAT in vitro diagnostic (IVD) analyzer with Intelligent Quality Management (iQM) at the American Association for Clinical Chemistry (AACC) Annual Meeting in Anaheim, California, August 6-8. The company also hosted a related educational workshop entitled "Lab-Quality Basic Metabolic Panel Testing in the ED for Efficient Triage and Enhanced Patient Care" at the event.

A new and complementary member of the GEM Premier Family, the GEM Premier ChemSTAT system is a whole-blood analyzer designed for rapid basic metabolic panel (BMP) testing at the point of care, primarily in hospital emergency departments (EDs) and clinical laboratories. The system provides laboratory-quality results on-demand, in less than 70 seconds, from venous or arterial whole blood samples, with no preparation required. Ultimately, this aids in diagnosis for timely triage of life-threatening conditions and enables rapid risk stratification, prioritization and treatment of high-risk, acutely ill patients. Featuring a complete BMP panel, the system offers three new tests—creatinine, blood urea nitrogen (BUN) and measured tCO2—in addition to sodium, potassium, ionized calcium, chloride, glucose, as well as lactate, hematocrit, pH and pCO2.

In order to assure laboratory-quality results at the point of care, the GEM Premier ChemSTAT system integrates iQM, providing a complete picture of quality for each sample—continuously and in real-time—and automated detection, correction and documentation of any action it performs, to ensure the quality of every test result and supporting immediate patient management decisions. Like all GEM Premier systems, GEM Premier ChemSTAT analyzers are also exceptionally easy to use. The all-in-one, multi-use GEM PAK cartridge automates the most labor- and skill-intensive processes. Stored at room temperature, GEM PAKs are simply replaced every three weeks, requiring no maintenance or additional handling. All testing components are self-contained, limiting biohazard and infection risk for operators and patients.

Additionally, GEMweb Plus Custom Connectivity enables management of all GEM Premier analyzers in a network, including the GEM Premier ChemSTAT system, for complete control of instruments, operators and data oversight from any location. GEM Premier systems, combined with GEMweb Plus 500 connectivity, deliver a complete solution for improved patient care and efficiency.

"We look forward to sharing our new GEM Premier ChemSTAT system with laboratorians and other healthcare providers at the AACC Annual Meeting," said Giovanni Russi, Senior VP of Worldwide Marketing at IL. "Offering rapid, lab-quality results with a menu customized for the ED, the GEM Premier ChemSTAT system will enhance patient management and operational efficiency at the point of care."
