Nova Biomedical has announced the addition of PT/INR testing for its Allegro capillary blood analyzer for point-of-care (POC) testing in primary care settings. Now with the ability to test for clotting disorders and monitor the effectiveness of blood-thinning medications, the Allegro, and its StatStrip-A companion meter provide 18 clinically important tests to help physicians make therapeutic decisions and adjustments at the point-of-care. The Allegro analyzer and this new PT/INR test are available now for purchase in CE regulated countries.

This upgrade allows Allegro to monitor patient coagulation therapy in addition to testing for glycemic control, kidney function, anemia, gout, and cardiac risk with a full lipids panel. PT/INR is just one of 18 tests for the Allegro platform, including HbA1c, Cholesterol, Triglycerides, Glucose, Creatinine, UACR, Hemoglobin, Hematocrit, and Uric Acid.

Allegro is a compact, fast, and simple POC analyzer that features a clinically important menu of twelve measured and individually selectable tests, plus six calculated tests. All Allegro tests use easy capillary fingerstick sampling, eliminating the need for venipunctures or a trained phlebotomist, and easy-to-use disposable test cartridges or strips. Allegro’s quick six to nine-minute cartridge test times and the ability to measure two cartridges simultaneously provide rapid results immediately to the physician.

Allegro is ideal for primary care settings with tests that are easily performed by non-technical personnel and feature disposable, ready-to-use cartridges and test strips. All results are ready during the patient visit, simplifying clinic workflow and producing cost savings for providers while offering clinical benefits for patients.

Allegro is the only analyzer that can measure HbAlc, lipids, glucose, and creatinine from a capillary sample. Its innovative design comprises dual measurement bays, which offers the unique ability to measure two cartridges simultaneously, doubling throughput and improving efficiency.

Allegro’s companion meters wirelessly transmit results to the analyzer, where they combine with all cartridge test results for one patient report. All results can be transmitted to electronic medical records for providers to review with patients during the visit. Having immediate results during the patient visit reduces clinic follow-up calls, letters, and patient re-visits, and improves patient satisfaction, compliance with care plans, and outcomes.
