January 28, 2015 — The Diagnostics Division of Siemens Healthcare unveiled its latest point-of-care acute care analyzer for the management of patients with cardiovascular disease symptoms at Medlab in Arab Health 2015, Dubai, Jan. 26-29. The company’s Stratus CS 200 Acute Care Diagnostic System is designed to enhance simple operation and instrument management at the point of care to help facilitate rapid decision-making and optimal patient care.

The Stratus CS 200 system has a user-friendly, touchscreen interface that makes it easy to navigate through menus. A barcode reader eliminates the need for manual entry and reduces potential for error. The system also offers bi-directional connectivity, which allows for safe and secure results transmission with third-party data managers and provides capability for remote operator lock-out and monitoring of calibration dates. In addition, the Stratus CS 200 system automatically spins whole blood into plasma for testing, reducing the risk of biohazard exposure and ensures results will be comparable to lab tests run on plasma samples.

The system delivers a robust cardiac assay menu, including high-sensitivity Troponin I. First results are available in as fast as 14 minutes, and subsequent results available in as little as 4 minutes.

The Stratus CS 200 is not available for sale in the United States.
