Get full insight into vital functions from one single blood sample:
The ABL9 blood gas analyzer is specially designed for critical care environments running only a few tests per day.
It’s developed with ease of use in mind, fits in any setting due to its small footprint and is affordable in price.
Using the on-screen step-by-step user guidance, you can easily measure patient samples on the ABL9 analyzer and receive immediate results on acid-base balance as well as oxygen and electrolyte status.
In a matter of seconds, you have the input you need to make the right diagnostic decisions for your critically ill patient.
The ABL9 blood gas analyzer provides you with reliable results in as little as 70 seconds on 70 microliters of blood. Radiometer’s engineers created a clever and simple blood gas analyzer that you can easily use.
Watch the video to see how the ABL9 analyzer has been designed to help you improve patient care.
Blood gas analysis provides information on a critically ill patient’s respiratory and metabolic status via insights to oxygen, carbon dioxide and the acid-base balance together with other vital information such as electrolytes and hemoglobin.
Through three educational videos, you’ll experience why blood gas analysis is important in three critical patient cases covering COPD, intoxication and sepsis.
Further, a set of three how-to videos will guide you in performing an arterial puncture, understanding the acid-base balance in the blood and reading the blood gas report.
