i-STAT is the POC (Point of Care) portable clinical blood analyzer machine manufactured by Abbott.In the past decades, i-STAT has been proved to be an advanced,easy-to-use blood analyzer in worldwide, with which medical staff can get real time,lab-quality results of blood test within minutes rather than hours.The i-STAT machine professionally refurbished by PoctDiamedix has the same appearance,circuit,liquid crystal display, buttons,battery and function as brand new one.
No time limit for software system use. PoctDiamedix removed the time limit of i-STAT software system, you can use the i-STAT machine as long as you wish.
Abbott Laboratories is an American health care company with headquarters in Lake Bluff, Illinois, United States. The company was founded by Chicago physician Wallace Calvin Abbott in 1888 to formulate known drugs; it eventually grew to also sell research-based drugs, medical devices, diagnostics, and nutritional products.

i-STAT is used in conjunction with disposable cartridges for determination of a variety of parameters in whole blood, which is able to store up to 50 patient records and permits on-screen viewing of test results as well as transmission of data records to a data management system by using infrared signals.
The i-STAT Portable Clinical Analyser is a wonderful point of care analyser, which is widely being used at the patients bedside for critical care tests such as blood gases, electrolytes, metabolytes and coagulation. With only a few drops of whole blood, between 65 and 95 µl, you can process it immediately and get lab-quality results in 2 minutes.
Refurbishment work done by PoctDiamedix
1.Clean the shell and sterilize it to make sure that its appearance looks like brand new one.
2.Clean and check internal mechanical parts to keep them neat and tidy.
3.Clean and check all sensors to assure them tidy and work normally.
4.Clean and inspect the board circuit to make it in perfect condition.
5.Check, clean and fix all the contact points, include PIN, FPC and FFC,make sure that all the contact points are perfect in their position.
6.Check barcode gun and make sure it works perfectly.
7.Check Charger and charging, make sure that the power system works properly.
8.Replace the old battery with a new quality battery with the same parameter.
9. Quality control team does a full set of quality test to make sure the machine is refurbished correctly.
10.Take human blood to test the accuracy and repeatability in real condition.

This manual describes the i-STAT Portable Clinical Analyzer, the Philips Medical Systems* Blood Analysis Module, i-STAT Cartridges and the i-STAT Central Data Station Version 5 program. Related sections are grouped behind tabs. The i-STAT Portable Clinical Analyzer and Philips Blood Analysis Module perform the same basic functions, although some elements of the Blood Analysis Module’s user interface have been adapted for a patient monitoring environment. Except were noted, operating instructions apply to both pieces of equipment. For specific information on the Blood Analysis Module,refer to the Blood Analysis Module section of this manual. The i-STAT 1 Analyzer is described in a separate manual.* Formally distributed by Hewlett-Packard and Agilent Technologies.
The i-STAT Portable Clinical Analyzer and Philips Blood Analysis Module are intended for use with i-STAT cartridges for the in vitro quantification of various analytes and coagulation times in whole blood. Analyzers and cartridges should be used by healthcare professionals trained to use
the system and should be used according to the facility’s policies and procedures.
The i-STAT System incorporates a comprehensive group of components needed to perform blood analysis at the point of care. A handheld Portable Clinical Analyzer or a Blood Analysis Module, a cartridge with the required tests, and 2 to 3 drops of blood will allow the caregiver to view quantitative test results for blood gas and chemistry tests in approximately 2 minutes as well as quantitative times for coagulation tests.
Portable printers and infrared communication devices allow all patient information obtained at the bedside to be printed on demand and transmitted to centralized information systems for record keeping and billing. The Central Data Station (CDS) program provides system management tools.
Software: All analyzer functions are controlled by software that can be updated as additional tests and features are developed. Coefficients used to maintain the accuracy of cartridge results over time are programmed into the analyzer via CLEW software updates every six months.
Power: The analyzer is powered by two 9-volt batteries. The lifetime for a set of new batteries is dependent on the type of battery (lithium batteries last longer than alkaline) and the types of cartridges used (cartridges that are thermally controlled use more energy). About 400 thermally controlled or about 100 coagulation cartridge test cycles can be expected from two 9-volt lithium batteries. The analyzer will display the message “BAT” when battery replacement is needed.
Caution: The BAT message warns that there is sufficient power for approximately 50 more non-coagulation cartridges when using lithium batteries. Because the power usage curve for alkaline batteries differs from that of lithium batteries, the warning may not be accurate for alkaline batteries.
A separate lithium battery internal to the analyzer maintains the clock/calendar and stored results. The analyzer has no on/off switch. It is automatically activated when a cartridge is inserted. The analyzer automatically deactivates after 45 seconds of inactivity. Pressing the display key activates the display screen for viewing results and accessing the menu.
Cartridge Port: Cartridges and the Electronic Simulator are inserted into the analyzer through the cartridge port on the keypad end of the analyzer. When properly inserted,the cartridge or simulator activates the analyzer.
Infrared Communication Window : The Infrared Communication Window provides the analyzer with two-way communication to the Central Data Station program via the IR Link,allows analyzer-to-analyzer software updates, and allows analyzer-to-printer communication.
Display Screen: Test results, operator prompts and other messages are displayed on the display screen.
