easier testing

The i-STAT Alinity system has an award-winning design and an easy-to-navigate user interface that is more intuitive than ever. In addition, steps associated with operator competency and compliance can be largely automated, lowering the burden for administrators.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            

 

Intuitive graphics-driven on-screen navigation
Provides step-by-step guidance through the testing process.

 

Result notifications with sound, light, and colour
Indicate when result is in the normal, abnormal or critical range, ideal in situations when the operator steps away from the instrument

On-screen resolution assistance
Outlines reason for failure and provide tips to the operator on how to avoid it in the future, helping to improve operator competency

Result notes

Allows the operator to document additional patient or test information, which is sent to the patient record along with the test results

 

Easier oversight 

Operator certification notification
Notifies operator to re-certify as expiration date of certification approaches.

Operator-initiated "Accept/Reject" 
Requires operator to verify test results before transmission of data

Pre-result test cancellation
Enables operator to cancel test during the test cycle and remove cartridge.

Customizable classroom training scenarios
Facilitates specific scenarious for classroom training.

On-screen direct observation checklist
Helps administrators communicate training requirements without being on site.

User-defined messaging
Allows administrators to create customised messages. 

 PPID 2nd identifier options messaging 
PPID feature helps improve accuracy of patient ID by obtaining at least two forms of patient ID prior to diagnostic testing. 

 

Recording of critical call-back
Alleviates the need for manual recordkeeping.

Seamless delivery of eVAS 
Electronic Value Assignment Sheets (eVas) are effortlessly transferable to instruments via Abbott-managed Server.

Lot-based QC
Helps administrator prevent cartridge use before QC has been performed on every new lot of i-STAT cartridges.

Calibration verification (Cal/Ver) & Liquid QC Auto Pass/Fail 
Allows administrators to set up a customised schedule for QC testing. The instrument can prevent patient testing until the verification is performed or provide a warning for flexibility in QC management.

Cal/Ver & Liquid QC Schedule & Lockout
Allows Cal/Ver to be performed according to a customized schedule. Lockout or warning allows for flexibility in QC managements performed or provide a warning for flexibility in QC management.

Accurate Results

The i-STAT Alinity system offers all the key components of a full-scale laboratory analyzer, that can be used at the patient’s side. In fact, all the fundamental chemical processes that take place in the laboratory also happen in the i-STAT test cartridge.

                                                                                                                                                

 

i-STAT: The difference of Single-Use Technology
  • The i-STAT Alinity single-use cartridge design means that each cartridge is used just once, then discarded.
  • Analyte concentrations are determined directly in a single sample without dilution.
  • Because of the single-use design, the drift or degradation associated with multi-use systems is eliminated.

Quality Embedded in the Manufacturing Process
  • Biosensors in i-STAT cartridges are fabricated with production and process controls embedded throughout the manufacturing process.
  • Thousands of cartridges are tested daily to be sure they meet performance standards for accuracy, precision, and reliability before they leave the factory.
Quality at the Healthcare Facility
  • An onboard quality system within the i-STAT Alinity instrument automatically monitor nearly 150 sensor characteristics that may impact the accuracy of results.
  • If any characteristic falls outside of the expected range, the results are rejected by the instrument.
  • Because the system uses automated quality controls and requires minimal operator interaction, the risk of user error is also reduced.

Connectivity

Sophisticated technology is designed to make managing use of the i-STAT Alinity system easy and seamless. The i-STAT Alinity infrastructure can be easily integrated into your healthcare's network through wireless or wired connectivity options, lowering administrative burden and helps meet compliance demands. 

connectivity to
abbott-managed server
  • Lowers the administrative burden by seamlessly transferring eVAS from the Abbott-managed Server to the instrument.
  • Readily available software from the Abbott-managed server allows operators to update the instrument software at their discretion.
WIRELESS & WIRED CONNECTIVITY OPTIONS
  • Allows efficient management of patient data through wireless or wired transmission of data to EMR or data manager.
CYBER SECURITY
  • Protected health information, operator information and device logs cannot be transmitted to the Abbott-managed Server.
  • Access to software download and installation is limited to approved and authenticated operators.
secured applications
  • AlinIQ NCi is used to configure network settings and runs as a local application behind a secured firewall. 
  • AlinIQ CWi manages customization profiles.
