New ABL90 FLEX delivers efficiency and performance

10 May, 2010  
Primarily designed for point-of-care testing, the ABL90 FLEX analyzer measures 17 parameters, including blood gas, electrolytes, metabolites and CO-oximetry from just 65μL of whole blood.

“The goal with the ABL90 FLEX was to create an analyzer that would actually decrease time spent on testing, so caregivers would have more time for patient care,” says Radiometer Presi-dent Peter Kürstein. “I believe we have succeeded with that. Both in creating an instrument that offers unmatched time to results, but also one that brings Radiometer’s renowned bench top accuracy and throughput into a compact, easy-to-use, no-maintenance analyzer.”

The focus on reducing time spent with the analyzer has resonated well with experts and customers.

“Time is a crucial parameter in obtaining better patient outcome,” says Christopher Price, visit-ing professor in clinical biochemistry at the University of Oxford, United Kingdom. “As a care-giver, you need to make clinical decisions rapidly and reliably. Having an instrument that en-ables this not only helps increase ICU capacity, but also improves patient outcome,” Price says. “It puts time on the caregiver’s side.”

Annette Larsen, an ICU nurse at Furesø Hospital in Denmark agrees, “time is very important for us.” “As a caregiver, I want to spend as little time as possible on testing and as much as possible on my patients. With the ABL90 FLEX, I can do that. It gives me more time for patient care,” she concludes.
