Xprecia Stride™ Coagulation Analyzer

Overview

Primary care, urgent care, and hospitals demand fast, reliable PT/INR testing for the monitoring of oral anticoagulation therapy (OAT) with warfarin. That’s why Siemens Healthineers is introducing the Xprecia Stride™ Coagulation Analyzer, a truly handheld device that tests PT/INR with lab accuracy.

The Xprecia Stride Coagulation Analyzer is ergonomically designed, with a large, intuitive touchscreen to enhance the user experience, simplify work flow, and improve overall testing accuracy. Together, these features make the testing process seamless and help minimize errors.

Features & Benefits

With the Xprecia Stride™ Coagulation Analyzer, healthcare professionals can feel confident that they are getting the usability, safety, efficiency, and accuracy they need. The Xprecia Stride analyzer is designed specifically to meet the needs of today’s healthcare professionals and address the key areas of importance in POC testing.

Usability

  • Touchscreen features include bright-color interface with step-by-step instructions help guide the user
  • Lot calibration using integrated bar-code reader

Safety

  • Test strip eject button reduces potential biohazard exposure
  • Operator lockout feature restricts analyzer use to trained staff only

Efficiency

  • Design is compact and portable to enable fast,efficient patient testing at the point of care
  • Test requires only small sample applied at tip of strip

Accuracy

  • Lab confirmatory testing may be reduced because of good correlation to lab results
  • Bar-code scanner offers patient and operator ID entry

Siemens hemostasis quality from lab to point of care.

  • Xprecia™ System PT/INR test strips and Siemens’ central lab analyzers use the same Dade® Innovin® reagent and QC

Xprecia™ Data Management Software (DMS)

Provides a simple, easy way to transfer data to and from the Xprecia Stride™ Coagulation Analyzer and a PC. The analyzer connects to a computer via USB to transmit:

  • Operator ID list; analyzer and operator settings
  • Analyzer software (firmware) upgrades
  • Patient and Liquid Quality Control results
  • Analyzer fault log

Results Displayed

  • International Normalized Ratio (INR)
  • Calculated seconds (not available in USA)

Electronic Quality Control (EQC)

Two quality-control checks verify the integrity of the test strips. The first control checks the presence of adequate sample and reagents on the test strip, and the second control detects test strip degradation due to exposure to environmental conditions. If either control fails, the system reports an error rather than an incorrect result.

Liquid Quality Control (LQC)

LQC tests help meet regulatory compliance requirements applicable to your facility. Use control solutions to perform quality-control checks on both the analyzer and test strips to ensure they are functioning correctly.
