CoaguChek XS Plus System Point of Care Testing Blood Testing

The Roche CoaguChek XS Plus system is a point-of-care anticoagulation monitor that offers connectivity and data management tools to help healthcare professionals manage PT/INR (blood clotting time) testing.

The CoaguChek XS Plus system allows healthcare professionals in CLIA-waived environments access to new tools and connectivity options to help them manage patients on warfarin therapy. The technology has several features that help ensure fast, accurate results, and the connectivity capabilities help healthcare providers with regulatory compliance, making it easier for them to manage their anticoagulation practices.

The CoaguChek XS Plus system offers the ability to connect and transfer data to IT solutions, including Telcor QML, Rals-Plus with expanded device configuration capabilities or through the Poct1A standard data transfer protocol. Implementing connectivity with the CoaguChek XS Plus enables data transfer and reporting capabilities to help hospital staff streamline the regulatory compliance process, capture reimbursable costs and improve their organizational efficiency.

The system uses two-level, built-in quality controls to help ensure the accuracy of PT/INR test results, but also offers optional liquid quality controls for facilities with policies requiring the use of external quality control measures.

The system received CLIA-waived status in October 2012.
