Nova Biomedical awarded multi-year critical care blood gas analyser agreement from Premier
Nova Biomedical has been awarded a multi-year group purchasing agreement for critical care blood gas analysers from Premier. This agreement provides Premier members access to Nova’s new Stat Profile Prime Plus® critical care blood gas analyser. Prime Plus features maintenance-free sensor technology to provide 20 essential critical care tests including BUN, creatinine, ionized magnesium, blood gases, electrolytes, metabolites, hematology, and co-oximetry. Prime Plus also provides new and patented, non-lysing whole blood co-oximetry technology, along with automated quality control (QC), powerful data management, bidirectional connectivity, and extensive cybersecurity protection. The current agreement allows Premier members, at their discretion, to take advantage of special, pre-negotiated pricing and terms for Prime Plus analysers and consumables in addition to Nova’s 10-test Prime analysers.
“We are pleased that Premier has awarded a group purchasing agreement to our innovative, maintenance-free Prime Plus,” said John Britt, Director of Corporate Accounts for Nova. “This agreement allows Premier members access to the entire Stat Profile Prime platform including its new flagship analyser, Prime Plus. Prime Plus introduces innovative technology that expands critical care testing with unique assays and eliminates sensor and co-oximeter maintenance, all of which improves uptime and reliability while reducing costs. Prime Plus represents the latest in critical care testing technology and further demonstrates Nova’s leadership and history of innovation.”
Prime Plus incorporates Nova’s innovative, maintenance-free sensor technology with individual MicroSensor cards, calibrator cartridges, and quality control cartridges. This design eliminates sensor and co-oximeter maintenance, improves analyser uptime, and reduces testing costs for the compact and easy-to-use Prime Plus.
