Stat Profile Prime Plus VET is a comprehensive, whole blood critical care analyzer that combines blood gases, electrolytes, metabolites, co-oximetry, and 32 calculated results in a simple, compact analyzer. Prime Plus VET combines maintenance-free, replaceable cartridge technology for sensors and reagents with patented, new, maintenance-free, and non-lysing whole blood co-oximetry technology. Prime Plus VET results are produced very rapidly, a complete test menu panel in about one minute, and are combined with bidirectional connectivity and a powerful onboard data management system.
BUN (Urea) and Creatinine
Kidney disease is common in cats and dogs. Prime Plus VET is the only veterinary critical care analyzer that provides the option of urea (BUN) and creatinine as well as calculated BUN/creatinine ratio.
Ionized magnesium (iMg)
Disruptions in the balance of iMg, Na, K, and iCa are common in veterinary medicine and can cause cardiac arrhythmias, reduced cardiac contraction, and cardiac arrest. Prime Plus VET is the only blood gas analyzer to provide a comprehensive profile of electrolytes including iMg.
Individual MicroSensor cards and calibrator cartridges offer a significant benefit in analyzer uptime compared to combined sensor/calibrator cartridge systems.
MicroSensor cards have fastest replacement time
MicroSensor cards can be replaced and calibrated in 45 minutes. Other combined systems usually take greater than one hour to calibrate and remain unstable with drift and frequent re-calibrations for two hours or longer.
Calibrator cartridges replaced in seconds
Calibrator and quality control (QC) cartridges are immediately ready to use and easily replaced in seconds. Replacing only a calibrator cartridge significantly reduces analyzer downtime because it has no warm-up time, compared to the over two-hour wait for competitors’ combined systems.
Three simple steps to initiate a full 22-test profile
Integrated barcode scanner
The 1D/2D barcode scanner, conveniently located within the sample port, allows for fast, error-free entry of operator and patient IDs. The optional, wireless, external barcode scanner also allows for positive patient ID, further eliminating pre-analytical error.
The unique design of the safety sample port protects the user from accidental contact with the analyzer probe.
QC proficiency ampoules can be sampled without adapters.
