Point of care creatinine and eGFR shows accuracy and could help reduce contrast-induced acute kidney injury
Nova Biomedical’s StatSensor® Creatinine is a handheld analyzer with a miniaturized disposable biosensor for whole blood creatinine testing in point of care settings. Creatinine and eGFR results in 30 seconds can help to minimize the risk of contrast induced nephropathy (CIN) in radiology and cardiac catheterization, to reduce medication risks in oncology and to expedite patient triage and care in emergency departments.
Nova Biomedical’s webinar series include presentations of having creatinine and eGFR results available without a delay when treating patients. Dr. Thomas Keeble has investigated improving patient treatment choices with immediately available creatinine result for STEMI patients and Dr. Sean Currin found StatSensor Creatinine/eGFR more accurate than laboratory Jaffe Creatinine/eGFR method.
