photoThis company has received FDA 510(k) clearance for reporting both glucose and BUN (urea) testing on the OPTI Critical Care Analyzer. The analyzer’s POC test menu includes pH, blood gases, electrolytes, measured total hemoglobin and oxygen saturation.
   The small analyzer is operated in critical care settings such as operating rooms, intensive care units, emergency rooms and out-patient facilities. Analytes are measured with optical sensors in single-use cassettes, which are stored at room temperature.
   This analyzer automatically aspirates whole blood samples from either a syringe or capillary tube and eliminates the need for operator intervention during sample application. AVL Medical Instruments
