Nova’s StatSensor Creatinine Hospital Meter System is a portable analyzer and a compact, single-use biosensor designed for whole blood creatinine testing.
The StatSensor Creatinine system is integrated with patented Multi-WellTM technology. This innovative technology allows a simple, fast and precise assessment of renal function through fingerstick capillary blood collection at the point of care.
Simple testing procedure
- Place the biosensor in the meter
- Lance the finger to produce a drop of blood
- Apply the drop of blood to the biosensor
- Read the creatinine results
- Almost painless, 1.2 µL fingerstick capillary blood specimen
- eGFR and creatinine results are obtained in 30 seconds
- Cleared for use by point-of-care (POC) personnel
Radiology and cardiac catherization
Reduce the risk of contrast-induced nephropathy (CIN) — the StatSensor Creatinine allows fast and real-time assessment of renal function before contrast imaging.
Improve workflow and productivity — when patients arrive for imaging sessions without a current creatinine/eGFR workup, the StatSensor Creatinine POC testing can avoid workflow interruptions and costly procedure room cancellations.
Improve patient happiness — the StatSensor Creatinine testing can help prevent patient displeasure, specifically when renal function had to be evaluated prior to an imaging procedure but has not been tested when the patient arrives for the treatment
Reduce drug risks — renal damage is common in cancer patients, who are particularly vulnerable to chemotherapy-induced renal toxicity. The StatSensor Creatinine system gives critical kidney function data for drug selection and dosing in chemotherapy.
Improve patient satisfaction — before receiving chemotherapy, a majority of cancer outpatients are required to have their kidney function assessed. Extracting a venous blood sample and delivering it to a lab for creatinine/eGFR testing may delay chemotherapy for many hours.
A chemotherapy treatment that may take only a few hours could take an entire day, causing patient dissatisfaction. With the StatSensor Creatinine system, however, a capillary blood sample can be acquired and renal function can be rapidly determined.
ED: Improve patient triage, expedite patient care
Within the emergency department (ED), many triage patient care procedures may necessitate a quick assessment of renal function to triage the patient. Besides this, several ED therapies need timely drug administration and dosage adjustment based on renal function.
The StatSensor Creatinine system can precisely assess renal function through a simple, 30-second test that can be easily carried out in the ED.
Community settings, pharmacies, clinics
Acute kidney injury (AKI) and chronic kidney disease (CKD) are becoming more common in community settings, contributing to increased morbidity, death and increased utilization of healthcare resources.
According to an important study performed by the International Society of Nephrology (ISN), StatSensor Creatinine/eGFR can be effectively used to improve the early detection of CKD and high-risk AKI in community settings.
