Introducing a new generation electrolyte analyzer that combines the revolutionary microelectronics of the consumer world with new microsensor technology for a simpler, smaller, faster, and less expensive analyzer.
Maintenance-free cartridge system
Nova’s unique cartridge system consists of a maintenance-free MicroSensor Card™ that contains all sensors in a miniaturized sensor card format, and a ready-to-use, snap-in calibrator cartridge that contains all reagents.
Available electrolyte profiles:
Na, K, Cl, iCa, iMg
Accepts whole blood, plasma, serum, urine, CSF, and dialysate. (Dialysate not for in-vitro diagnostic use)
1-minute stat testing
Optional 10-position autosampler
Maximum analyzer readiness and uptime
Always calibrated and ready
The MicroSensor Card is automatically calibrated throughout its 32-day use life and is always ready to deliver an electrolyte profile in just one minute. Individual cartridges offer a significant benefit in analyzer uptime compared to combined sensor/calibrator cartridge systems.
Clot Block™ protection
A unique Clot Block sample flow path is designed to protect sensor cartridges from downtime and maintenance that can result from the introduction of a clotted sample.
Safe, maintenance-free waste system
Biohazardous waste is self-contained within the calibrator cartridge, eliminating waste disposal maintenance and potential exposure.
True, liquid quality control (QC)
In the United States, federal government regulations (CLIA) are phasing out electronic equivalent quality control (EQC) and are requiring true, liquid-based quality control QC.
