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 bedside testing with the i-STAT System is as easy as inserting two or three drops of blood into the cartridge, inserting the cartridge into the handheld, and then viewing test results in as little as two 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.
