Our portfolio of life-changing technologies spans the spectrum of healthcare, with leading businesses and products in diagnostics, medical devices, nutritionals and branded generic medicines. Our 107,000 colleagues serve people in more than 160 countries

Abbott Point of Care (APOC), a $600 million division of Abbott, enables health care professionals to accurately achieve real-time, lab-quality diagnostic results at the point of care within minutes. Testing at the point of care enables health care professionals to make rapid triage and treatment decisions when diagnosing a patient’s condition or monitoring a treatment response. By simplifying the testing process, clinicians can focus on what matters most caring for the patient.

Abbott Point of Care’s i-STAT Analyzer is a handheld system that is used with single-use i-STAT test cartridges. Together they form the i-STAT System—a blood analysis system that provides health care professionals with the information they need to rapidly make treatment decisions. Patient bedside testing with the i-STAT System is as easy as inserting two or three drops of blood into the cartridge, inserting the cartridge into the handheld analyzer, and viewing test results in as little as two minutes for most cartridges. Test results are uploaded automatically delivered wirelessly with the i-STAT Wireless or directly when the i-STAT handheld is placed in a downloader. The i-STAT System eliminates process steps and handoffs to help reduce the incidence of errors and promote patient safety. Hospitals and clinics in more than 100 countries around the world depend on the i-STAT System in critical care situations.
