Nova Biomedical Introduces a New Generation Veterinary Critical Care Analyzer
with Stat Profile® Prime Vet
Waltham, MA – Nova Biomedical is pleased to introduce Stat Profile Prime Vet, a new generation veterinary critical care analyzer that utilizes Nova’s innovative no-maintenance sensor card technology for a smaller, faster, and less expensive analyzer.
Prime Vet delivers a 10-test stat menu of pH, PCO2, PO2, Na, K, Cl, Ca, Glu, Lac, and Hct, offering veterinary providers the opportunity to improve profitability through in-house diagnostics. Veterinary providers may also benefit from Prime Vet’s open data interfacing and optional data management system to optimize billing.
Prime Vet’s no-maintenance technology comprises a single MicroSensor Card™ that contains all sensors with a 32-day use life, and a reagent cartridge containing all calibration reagents. The MicroSensor Card and reagent cartridge are both maintenance free and easily replaced in seconds. This design optimizes the life of each, improves analyzer uptime, and reduces costs.
Prime Vet’s Clot Block™ sample flow path protects the MicroSensor Card from blockages and downtime caused by blood clots. Complete quality monitoring is achieved through automated quality control that verifies analyzer accuracy and precision on assayed liquid controls, and supplemental quality monitoring that electronically monitors correct performance of all analytical components for each analysis.
