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.*Refer to the i-STAT 1 System Manual for precautions, limitations, and hazards
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.
Insert two or three drops of blood into the cartridge.

View the results on the handheld screen within minutes.
Upload information automatically into the LIS/HIS.
