What differentiates your product from other products on the market? Designed to fit in various settings: emergency department, stat lab, chest pain center, CCU and ICU; and offers a hsTnI method that meets the ACC/ESC guidelines for Troponin performance (less than or equal to 10% CV at the 99th percentile of a normal reference population). Offers the first highsensitivity CRP assay cleared by the FDA as an independent marker for risk assessment and for risk stratification in the POC setting. Includes closed container sampling, onboard sample preparation, including centrifugation from the primary collection tube, enabling ease-of-use. Provides stat quantitative results from a whole blood sample within 14 minutes. Results are standardized with the company's Dimension® family of analyzers in the central lab offering seamless result comparison. This benchtop instrument does not require external water or waste line connections and offers connectivity capabilities to hospital or lab information systems. The Stratus® CS Acute CareT System Kiosk can be purchased as a stand-alone workstation featuring its own lightweight cart, refrigerator and power supply and is uniquely designed for use in the acute care setting. The SCS is compliant with POCT 1A when interfaced with Telcor's Quick-Linc or MAS' RALS and optional middleware. The Stratus® CS Acute CareT analyzer is not POCT 1A compliant as a standalone.
