Radiometer introduces MicroMode measuring for foetal scalp and neonatal capillary sampling

28 August, 2015  

Radiometer has launched the advanced ABL90 FLEX PLUS blood gas analyser*, featuring a unique MicroMode measuring function for extremely small volume blood samples.

The state-of-the-art analyser is ideal for the delivery room or the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU), helping healthcare professionals to provide the most effective care possible. MicroMode measuring – combined with the new 45µl safeCLINITUBES plastic capillary tubes – provides a perfect solution for delicate capillary sampling procedures, enabling immediate assessment of a potentially distressed foetus or critically ill neonate.

Up to 17 critical parameters can be determined rapidly at the point of patient care from a single very small volume sample, with results available in just 60 seconds. Operation is both safe and simple, with automatic inlet opening and closing to minimise manual processes and reduce the risk of errors. To ensure data integrity, the analyser can be connected to the AQURE point of care management system.

For the ultimate neonatal care package, the comprehensive analytical capabilities of the ABL90 FLEX PLUS blood gas analyser and safe sampling devices can be complemented with Radiometer’s TCM CombiM monitor, allowing continuous, non-invasive, transcutaneous monitoring of oxygenation and ventilation in real time. This combination of blood gas analysis and transcutaneous monitoring – Radiometer’s NeoOne solution – is particularly beneficial in the NICU, providing a more complete clinical picture for these at risk patients.
