The CHEM8+ CARTRIDGE is a single-use, in vitro diagnostic test that combines a battery of basic metabolic tests including sodium, potassium, chloride, ionized calcium, total CO(2), glucose, blood urea nitrogen (BUN) and creatinine.
The i-STAT CHEM8+ cartridge with the i-STAT 1 System is intended for use in arterial or venous whole blood in point of care or clinical laboratory settings
Each i-STAT single-use cartridge uses advanced biosensor technology that applies microfluidics to process the most comprehensive range of clinical tests in a single platform, allowing clinicians to access the time-sensitive diagnostic information they need
To perform a test, 2 to 3 drops of blood are applied to a cartridge, which is then inserted into the i-STAT handheld
Prior to running a test, each cartridge initiates a series of preset quality control diagnostics, from monitoring the quality of the sample to validating the reagent
Each test cartridge contains chemically sensitive biosensors on a silicon chip that are configured to perform specific tests
