The i‑STAT System helps deliver collaborative, patient-centred care and can drive performance in every hospital department. In just minutes, the i‑STAT System delivers lab-quality testing and record-keeping — without leaving the patient's side, allowing health care professionals to quickly respond to any need and condition.
Only four steps are required to get lab-quality test results in less time and at lower cost. Quickly respond to any need or change in a patient’s condition while at the bedside.
Quality checks of sample integrity, sensors, and fluidics are automatic with each single-use i‑STAT test cartridge, providing confidence and advanced performance.
Real-time results mean that clinical teams can efficiently collaborate at the patient's side to make immediate treatment decisions.
By delivering testing with-patient, the use of the i‑STAT System can enhance patient satisfaction by minimising wait times and length of stay.1
The i‑STAT System has been shown to deliver lab-quality results significantly quicker than two separate bench-top analysers2 and the central laboratory.3
The i‑STAT System provides a comprehensive menu of the most commonly performed tests, ideal for meeting the needs of various hospital department settings.

Surgical services and specialty departments, such as the cardiovascular operating room (CVOR), are often under pressure to obtain quick test results in order to respond immediately to unstable patient conditions. The i‑STAT System provides lab-quality test results in the operating theatre—helping keep your entire team with the patient during the entire procedure when it really matters.
Catheterisation labs are a growing area in hospitals. Cardiac patients undergoing procedures require constant monitoring of vital signs, blood oxygenation, and heparin levels. With the i‑STAT System, tests can be performed with-patient, leading to greater efficiency in the cath lab.
Because usage of the i‑STAT System enables rapid testing of blood gases, respiratory therapists can gain a greater degree of control over a patient’s respiratory condition.
Contrast media can pose serious health risks to patients with chronic or acute renal insufficiency—including potentially fatal nephrogenic systemic fibrosis (NSF) or contrast-induced nephropathy (CIN).4 Creatinine measurement of renal function is recommended prior to administration of contrast media—especially for patients with risk factors such as diabetes, kidney impairment, and advanced age.5 Waiting for lab creatinine tests could take hours, disrupting the efficiency of the department or clinic.
