Radiometer announces today the release of the ABL9 – the new compact blood gas analyzer specially developed for critical care environments that only run a few blood gas tests per day.
The new ABL9 blood gas analyzer uses the same cutting-edge technology as Radiometer’s renowned blood gas analyzers in the ABL compact series. It is developed with ease of use in mind, fits in any setting due to its small footprint and comes with a flexible cost profile adapted to the hospital’s testing needs.
“Radiometer is committed to help caregivers make diagnostic decisions that save lives”, says Henrik Schimmell, President of Radiometer.
“Years of research among users of blood gas analyzers in high-growth markets have confirmed the need for a smaller, more cost-effective, easy-to-use blood gas analyzer which delivers reliable and fast results on acid-base balance as well as oxygen and electrolyte-status on critically ill patients.”
“We call it ‘clever made simple’ because it unites the clever technology that we know from the ABL compact analyzer series and a user interface that is so intuitive that it becomes plug and play.”
In November 2016, the new ABL9 blood gas analyzer was introduced to hospital settings, both point of care, lab and specialized wards, as well as primary care settings, such as pneumologists, in Japan, France, Turkey and Germany.
As of today, it is globally available in several markets.
