A Fast, Simple, Capillary Blood Analyzer
Allegro is a compact, point-of-care (POC) analyzer that features a clinically important menu of 12 measured and individually selectable tests, plus 6 calculated tests. All tests are measured with disposable, ready-to-use cartridges or test strips, and are easily performed by non-technical personnel.

Allegro uses a very small capillary blood drop for all blood tests, which eliminates the need for venipunctures or a trained phlebotomist. With cartridge test times of 6 to 9 minutes and the ability to measure two cartridges simultaneously, Allegro provides rapid results. Having results during the patient visit—not after—is more effective for patient/clinician meetings; reduces office calls, letters, and follow-up visits; and improves patient compliance with care recommendations.

Point-of-Care Fingerstick Testing for Hemoglobin and Hematocrit

Only Point-of-Care (POC) Meter to Measure Both Hb and Hct
The StatStrip Hemoglobin and Hematocrit Meter System (StatStrip Hb/Hct) is the only POC system to provide anemia screening and monitoring with measured, not calculated, Hb and Hct tests. This important breakthrough is possible because of new, patented electrochemical technologies developed by Nova Biomedical. Along with tiny, fingerstick capillary samples (1.6 µL) and results in 40 seconds, StatStrip Hb/Hct improves clinical decision making at the point of care.

Accurate anemia assessment
Accurate anemia evaluation requires both measured Hct (red cell volume) and measured Hb. However, current POC meters only provide a calculated estimate of Hct.

Calculated Hct assumes a normal Hct-to-Hb relationship [Hct % = 3 x Hb (g/dL)], and is therefore inaccurate whenever Hct is abnormal.

This is particularly evident in red cell structural abnormalities, hemoglobinopathies, and hemolytic conditions caused by infection, autoimmune disease, toxins, drugs, and chemicals. These conditions necessitate measured Hct because calculated results can negatively impact treatment.

Smallest sample
StatStrip Hb/Hct’s 1.6 µL fingerstick capillary blood sample makes routine Hb and Hct testing and anemia screening virtually painless for the patient. It also enables frequent monitoring of acute patients for blood loss.

Stat EMS™

Ambulance and Emergency Blood Testing
Stat EMS measures glucose, ketone, lactate, hematocrit, and hemoglobin from a capillary blood drop. Results are available in seconds, depending on the test. By combining single-use biosensor technology with portable electronics, Stat EMS offers simple, fast, accurate testing in the field.

Test Menu
Stat EMS provides an important test menu for immediate patient assessment and faster, more effective emergency treatment. Stat EMS also assists with rapid triage and determining the appropriate transport site for patients with trauma, sepsis, or other specialized needs.

Glucose and Ketone
Abnormal glucose levels are frequently encountered in emergency medicine. Medical conditions that warrant pre-hospital blood glucose testing include diabetes, altered mental state, abnormal vitals, fever, illness, nausea, infection, seizure, acute coronary syndrome, organ injury, trauma, sepsis, septic shock, and burns.1-3Blood ketone testing provides rapid detection or rule-out of diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA), the leading cause of hospitalization and death for children with diabetes.4 The American Diabetes Association and International Society for Pediatric and Adolescent Diabetes recommend blood ketone testing for people with diabetes whenever glucose is above 14 mmol/L and during illness.5,6

Elevated blood lactate is a rapid, sensitive indicator of tissue hypoxia, sepsis, septic shock, and hypovolemic shock.7-9
In pre-hospital medicine, lactate testing provides:Early, more sensitive detection of sepsis and septic shock than vital signs alone8
Identification of patients with sepsis who might benefit from early goal-directed therapy and advanced activation of medical staff at the transport site10,11
Evaluation of trauma, critical illness, hemorrhage, acute coronary syndrome, acute respiratory failure, and chest abdominal pain11-13
Hemoglobin and Hematocrit

Stat EMS provides accurate, measured results for both hemoglobin and hematocrit for pre-hospital assessment of blood oxygen carrying capacity, and for:

Rapid identification of chronic and acute anemia14
Evaluation of internal or external hemorrhage
Assessment of the need for blood products14,15
Estimation of blood loss15

BioProfile® FLEX2

Automated Cell Culture Analyzer with Maintenance-Free Chemistry Sensors
BioProfile FLEX2 combines Nova’s groundbreaking MicroSensor Card™ technology with optical measurement and freezing point osmometry for an automated and comprehensive cell culture analyzer that eliminates chemistry sensor maintenance, increases analyzer speed, and reduces sample volume. The full 16 cell culture test menu includes: Gluc, Lac, Gln, Glu, NH4+, Na+, K+, Ca++, pH, PCO2, PO2, total cell density, viable cell density, viability, cell diameter, and osmolality.

Compared to the previous generation BioProfile FLEX there is no maintenance for any of the 11 chemistry and gas sensors, sample volume for the full test menu is reduced by 75% to 275 microliters, and testing time is reduced to just 4.5 minutes. Automated sampling from 96-well plates, syringes, or a 24-position external “load-and-go” sample tray provides maximum workflow flexibility and efficiency for cell culture monitoring.

Stat Profile Prime uses Nova’s proven biosensor technology in a miniaturized, sensor card format.

Fastest Replacement Time
MicroSensor cards can be replaced, warmed, calibrated, and ready to run the analyzer’s full sample throughput in less than half the time it takes other cartridge systems.

Flow Path Protection
Unique probe and flow path protects the analyzer from the flow path blockages. All sensors are contained in one MicroSensor Card. 

Maintenance-Free Cartridge Technology
Snap-in cartridges are easy to replace and avoid prolonged calibrations common to older cartridge based systems. Onboard quality control (QC) cartridges perform QC automatically, saving time and labor. Nova’s MicroSensor cards, calibration cartridges, and QC cartridges offer a maintenance-free solution to cell culture monitoring.

BioProfile® pHOx® Analyzer

Compact pH / PCO2 / PO2 Analyzer
BioProfile pHOxis the first analyzer designed specifically to provide rapid, accurate measurement of acid base and respiratory parameters in cell culture and fermentation samples. This compact, easy-to-use analyzer measures pH, PCO2, and PO2 in the appropriate ranges for cell culture and fermentation processes, and provides calculated values for total CO2, bicarbonate, CO2 saturation, and air saturation (dissolved oxygen).

Small Size, Big Output
BioProfile pHOx analyzers measure only 31 cm x 38 cm x 38 cm (12” wide by 15” deep by 15” tall), including on-board reagents and controls, as well as a sealed waste container to store used reagents and samples.

Cartridge-Based Reagent Management System (RMS)
BioProfile pHOx features smart reagent cartridges that are easy to use with simple snap-in replacement. A self-contained waste receptacle within the cartridge eliminates direct handling of waste and direct contact with hazardous biological materials. Other systems can pose significant waste handling hazards to operators.
