The StatStrip Lactate Hospital Meter System is a handheld point-of-care testing system that brings lactate testing directly to the patient’s bedside.
Lactate is currently measured on blood gas analyzers, which creates numerous problems for bedside testing. Blood gas analyzers require anaerobic arterial samples, large sample volumes (100-200 microliters), and long analysis times (up to 2.5 minutes).
In addition, blood gas analyzers are complex to operate, fixed in location, and expensive to purchase and use for serial lactate testing.
StatStrip Lactate provides the fastest turnaround time possible (13 seconds), on the smallest whole blood sample (0.6 microliters), and can be easily operated by medical and nursing staff. StatStrip Lactate is a very low-cost device that makes lactate testing practical and affordable in any size ED, ICU, or medical unit. It is fully connectable to a hospital's IT system through NovaNet.
