Blood gas analyser

Light and easily transportable, the EPOC device is made to assist doctors during the medical consultations, in mobility or at the office. It allows to obtain blood gas, electrolytes and metabolites analyses results in 30 secondes after patient's testing. Moreover, its functioning with a card allows to both master and reduce the costs.
Blood gas, electrolytes and metabolites on a hand-held device in 30 seconds

The EPOC Reader and Host are two separate devices that communicate bi-directionally via Bluetooth and provide a handheld, wireless solution used for testing blood gases, electrolytes, and metabolites in about 30 seconds.

Simply insert the Test Card into the EPOC Reader and obtain a blood sample from the patient.

Once fresh blood passes across the biosensors on the EPOC Test Card, results are sent to the EPOC Host Mobile Computer in approximately 30 seconds.
The almost instantaneous delivery of BGEM results at the bedside enables the clinician to accelerate treatment decisions that may lead to improved patient outcomes.

The EPOC Blood Analysis System incorporates 11 analytes on a single-use, self-calibrating EPOC BGEM Test Card.
