StatStrip® Lactate

StatStrip Lactate is a handheld, true 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 have long analysis times (up to 2.5 minutes). In addition, blood gas analyzers are complex to operate, are not portable and are expensive to purchase and operate. StatStrip point-of-care testing 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.
