In critical care - intensive care units, emergency departments, operating rooms or neonatology units - fast turnaround time for diagnostic test results have been correlated to improved patient outcomes. The ability to rapidly analyze a range of basic biomarkers in patient blood can be vital.
Siemens Healthineers’ FDA and Health Canada approved epoc® Blood Analysis System, a so-called BGEM analyzer, was designed to specifically address these critical requirements.
It enables fast comprehensive analysis of blood gases (ie, pH, pCO2, pO2), electrolytes (ie, Na+, K+, Ca2+, Cl-), metabolites (ie, Glucose, Lactate, Urea, Creatinine)
and Haematocrit. It is a patient-side testing solution that delivers a full menu of laboratory-accurate tests in less than a minute.
