RAPIDPoint 500 system
A lactate assay is now available for Siemens’ recently launched RAPIDPoint 500 system for cartridge-based critical care testing at the point of care. Lactate joins an already extensive assay menu that includes blood gas, electrolytes, metabolites and CO-oximetry. The user-friendly system delivers rapid and accurate test results in approximately 60 seconds. The lactate assay further enhances the system’s functionality for clinicians relying on critical-care testing in, for example, Accident & Emergency departments or Intensive Care Units.
