i-STAT Handheld

An advanced, easy-to-use blood analyzer that provides healthcare professionals with access to real time, lab-quality results within minutes rather than hours

Make Critical Decisions with a single testing solution

The i-STAT handheld operates with the advanced technology of single-use i-STAT test cartridges. Together, they create the i-STAT System*—a blood analysis system that provides health care professionals with the information they need to rapidly make treatment decisions, which may lead to enhanced quality of care and improved system efficiency.

how it works

Results in 4 easy steps

Patient-side testing with the i-STAT System is as easy as inserting 2 or 3 drops of blood into the cartridge, inserting the cartridge into the handheld, and then viewing test results in as little as 2 minutes for most cartridges. Test results are uploaded automatically, delivered wirelessly with the i-STAT Wireless or directly when the i-STAT handheld is placed in a downloader. The i-STAT System eliminates process steps and handoffs to help reduce the incidence of errors and promote patient safety.
