Note Regarding System Reliability:The i-STAT 1 System automatically runs a comprehensive set of quality checks of analyzerand cartridge performance each time a sample is tested. This internal quality system willsuppress results if the analyzer or cartridge does not meet certain internal specifications(see Quality Control section in System Manual for detailed information). To minimize theprobability of delivering a result with medically significant error the internal specificationsare very stringent. It is typical for the system to suppress a very small percentage ofresults in normal operation given the stringency of these specifications. If however theanalyzer or cartridges have been compromised, results may be persistently suppressed,and one or the other must be replaced to restore normal operating conditions.
The cTnI cartridges can only be used with the i-STAT 1 analyzer bearing the symbol.
