Abbott Receives FDA CLIA Waiver for Use of Five Additional Cartridges on the i-STAT Handheld Blood Analyzer
Date:1/19/2009

PRINCETON, N.J., Jan. 19 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Abbott announced today that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has granted waived status under the Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments of 1988 (CLIA) for five additional test cartridges used by its i-STAT handheld blood analyzer.

"These additional CLIA waivers underscore the high quality and reliability of i-STAT cartridge technology and expand its potential beyond the hospital setting," said Greg Arnsdorff, vice president, point of care diagnostics, Abbott.

The CLIA waivers indicate that these test cartridges are simple and accurate and can be made more broadly available to healthcare providers where fast results are needed such as physicians' offices, outpatient clinics, imaging centers, catheterization labs, as well as emergency departments, intensive care units, operating rooms, and military bases. By providing these critical test results rapidly, health care provi
