FDA Clears Abbott's i-STAT® 1 Wireless Point of Care Testing System
Date:3/29/2011

PRINCETON, N.J., March 29, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Abbott announced today it has received clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to begin marketing the i-STAT® 1 Wireless handheld, a new wireless version of the i-STAT® point of care testing system that is widely used in hospitals, emergency rooms and physicians' offices.

The handheld analyzer can potentially save precious time by allowing caregivers to perform critical tests at the bedside and then transmit test results immediately so they can be reviewed by physicians anywhere they have access to electronic records.  Eliminating back-and-forth movement from the bedside to a desktop transmission terminal somewhere in the department gives staff the ability to better focus on the patient.

"With wireless, physicians can receive immediate test information in the electronic medical record, enabling them to act quickly when a patient's clinical status is rapidly changing," Arnsdorff said.

With the 10-minute i-STAT cardiac troponin test cartridge, for example, emergency department staffs can test, transmit and treat from the bedside. This helps health care providers maintain compliance with testing guidelines from the American College of Cardiology and American Heart Association, which call for a turnaround time of less than 60 minutes. By sharing these test results via a hospital's existing wireless network, caregivers ha
