Nova Biomedical (Waltham, MA, USA) is presenting its range of point of care (POC) and critical care whole blood in vitro diagnostic testing solutions at MEDICA 2023.

Nova Biomedical is demonstrating the Stat Profile Prime Plus Critical Care analyzer which recently received the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) 510(k) clearance for a microcapillary sample mode. Prime Plus now performs an 11-test panel including pH, PCO2, PO2, Na, K, iCa, iMg, Cl, glucose, lactate, and hematocrit with just 90 microliters of capillary blood, or a complete 22-test profile on just 135 microliters of blood. The use of small-volume microcapillary blood collection tubes with Prime Plus eliminates sample over-draws, dead volume, and sample waste from syringe or vacuum tube devices. Prime Plus comprehensive test menu enables scheduled bundling of tests to eliminate multiple sample draws, use of multiple sample containers, and amount of blood drawn for critical care testing.

Nova Biomedical’s StatStrip Glucose Hospital Meter System is also being exhibited at MEDICA 2023. The StatStrip Glucose and StatStrip Glucose/Ketone meters are specifically designed for the detection and management of dysglycemia throughout all professional healthcare settings including critical care. Also on display at the event are the StatStrip and StatStrip Xpress2 Lactate, Hemoglobin, and Hematocrit Meter Systems which provide lactate results in only 13 seconds from a 0.6 microliter capillary blood sample, and hemoglobin and hematocrit results in 40 seconds from a 1.6 microliter capillary blood sample. StatStrip Lac/Hb/Hct meter system can connect to laboratory information systems (LIS) and electronic medical records (EMR) while the Xpress2 Lac/Hb/Hct is designed for applications that do not require connectivity.

All results offer excellent correlation to laboratory reference methods and testing with a StatStrip or Xpress2 Lac/Hb/Hct meter system is as easy as glucose self-testing. StatStrip and StatStrip Xpress2 Lac/Hb/Hct systems offer fast, point-of-care (POC) testing with single-use, disposable biosensors, tiny capillary blood samples, and easy-to-read, color display screens. The meters enable rapid, affordable lactate, hemoglobin, and hematocrit testing for any size emergency department, intensive care unit, or medical unit, as well as in pre-hospital, ambulance, and military care situations.
