About ACT

With i-STAT ACT, healthcare professionals can measure the time required for complete activation of the coagulation cascade. i-STAT ACT is similar to traditional ACT tests except that the endpoint is indicated by a chemical measurement of the presence of thrombin instead of a mechanical measurement of a physical clot. i-STAT ACT provides clinicians a with-patient ACT test that is more reliable and reproducible, enabling more accurate heparin dose adjustments.

In a  study that compared the precision and reliability of i-STAT Kaolin ACT with Hemochron Signature Elite and Medtronic ACT Plus,  i-STAT ACT demonstrated better performance and was less susceptible to external factors such as temperature, dilution, hematocrit, fibrinogen levels and user technique.
