Bayer Diagnostics is launching the Rapidpoint 400, its first near-patient blood gas and electrolyte analyser for intensive care, operating theatre or casualty units. The device can report results on any or all analytes within 60 seconds, making it, the makers claim, the fastest response of any point-of-care blood gas system. It also has intuitive sample management that can give warning of short samples, blood clots or gas bubbles.
