Technical Specifications

System Description

Point-of-care blood coagulation analyser for PT/INR, PT testing


Automatic calibration when a test strip is scanned prior to each test

Sample Type

Fresh capillary whole blood

Sample Size

Capillary: 6µL


Details included in test strip package

Performance Characteristics

Reporting range: 0.8 to 8.0 INR. Results outside this range will be displayed as Out of Range.

Memory Recall

At minimum, 640 patient results, 300 Liquid Quality Control results, 300 error messages

Xprecia™ Data Management Software (DMS)

Provides a simple, easy way to transfer data to and from the Xprecia Stride™ Coagulation Analyser and a PC. The analyser connects to a computer via USB to transmit::

  • Operator ID list; analyser and operator settings
  • Analyser software (firmware) upgrades
  • Patient and Liquid Quality Control results
  • Analyser fault log

Results Displayed

  • International Normalised Ratio (INR)
  • Calculated seconds

Electronic Quality Control (EQC)

Two quality-control checks verify the integrity of the test strips. The first control checks the presence of adequate sample and reagents on the test strip, and the second control detects test strip degradation due to exposure to environmental conditions.

If either control fails, the system reports an error rather than an incorrect result.

Liquid Quality Control (LQC)

LQC tests help meet regulatory compliance requirements applicable to your facility. Use control solutions to perform quality-control checks on both the analyser and test strips to ensure they are functioning correctly.
