Very few pre-analytical errors, easy to train in point of care setting.
Rating: 4.3

  • Application Area: Point of Care

"The i-STAT is by far one of the easiest instruments to train point of care (nursing) staff on. We utilize it in our cath lab, ICU, and CT locations as well as a backup in our main lab (G3+, Chem8+, ACT, cTNI).


The i-STAT has very few pre-analytical variables unlike other point of care instruments which raises the standard of care across users. It has also helped us remain compliant through QC lockout and QC scheduling. The use of operator expiration notification helps with organizing 600+ operators competencies as I no longer have to tell each operator when they're expiring.


One negative I would like to mention is that the manufacturers CAL/VER material does not go down to the high and low end for some analytes such as cTNI which has left us using other material to verify our reportable ranges.

"The I-stat is okay, the cartridges out date quickly and have to be stored in the refrigerator. This is a product that I would recommend for researching for smaller laboratories."

"Once we received this item in our lab the STATS we had were much more efficiently tested with faster results seen by both the patients and our doctors. I would suggest this product to other laboratories seeing as how it has sped up our turnaround time."
