    Text in bold indicates NHS recommendations supported by i-STAT point-of-care testing. The i-STAT System does not include a D-dimer test.

    In the UK, National Health Service UTC Diagnostic Standards1  recommend that all UTCs have access to:

    • Swabs, pregnancy tests, urine dipstick and culture 
    • Near-patient blood testing, such as glucose,  haemoglobin, d-dimer and electrolytes
    • Electrocardiograms (ECG) 
    • Near-patient troponin testing (some centres)

    These guidelies also recommend that UTCs, particularly those not co-located with A&E, have access to:

    • Bedside diagnostics
    • X-ray facilities

    Where facilities are not available on site, the NHS advises that clear access protocols should be in place.
