• Capillary fingerstick samples for all blood tests
• Immediate test results during the patient visit
• Reduces patient follow-up visits and costs
Allegro is a compact, point-of-care (POC) analyzer that features a clinically important menu of 10 measured and individually selectable tests, plus 7 calculated tests. All tests are measured with disposable, ready-to-use cartridges or test strips, and are easily performed by non-technical personnel.
Allegro uses a very small capillary blood drop for all blood tests, which eliminates the need for venipunctures or a trained phlebotomist. With cartridge test times of 6 to 9 minutes and the ability to measure two cartridges simultaneously, Allegro provides rapid results. Having results during the patient visit—not after—is more effective for patient/clinician meetings; reduces office calls, letters, and follow-up visits; and improves patient compliance with care recommendations.
Allegro provides a comprehensive test menu to monitor the effectiveness of glycemic control, assess the risk or progression of diabetes complications, and make therapeutic adjustments for patients.
|Glycemic Control||Kidney Function||Lipids/Cardiac Risk||Coagulation||Inflammation|
|HbA1c||Blood Creatinine||Total Cholesterol||PT/INR||CRP|
|Estimated avg. Glu||Urine Creatinine||Cholesterol/HDL Ratio|
|Urine Albumin||Non-HDL Cholesterol|
|Albumin/Creatinine Ratio||LDL Cholesterol|
Capillary sampling is easily performed by staff members, eliminating the need for venipunctures, trained phlebotomists,
and blood drawing tubes and needles. Allegro’s use of a small,
5 μL blood drop makes testing virtually painless for the patient.
Tests Available from Capillary Fingerstick Samples
| Lipids Panel
Tests Available from Urine Samples
| Urine Albumin
The StatStrip meter wirelessly transmits patient-identified test results to the analyzer where they are combined with the cartridge test results in a single patient report.
• Lab-like results
• The only glucose meter FDA cleared for critical care
Simple Testing Procedure
Allegro’s simple testing procedures are easily performed by office staff. An onboard barcode scanner automatically enters patient ID and cartridge test assay information. When an analysis is completed, the results are automatically printed and stored in the Allegro database and transmitted to the electronic medical record (EMR) for clinician viewing.
Allegro’s 20.32 cm x 38.1 cm footprint easily fits in clinician offices, clinics, and hospital outpatient locations. It can also be operated on an optional mobile cart.
