ABL800 FLEX blood gas analyzer

High throughput and Drop 'n' Go capability for high-volume needs

Ideal for medium to high-volume departments, the ABL800 FLEX blood gas analyzer offers reliable automated sample handling and workflow efficiencies.

Drop'n go function

The unique FLEXQ module allows you to automatically analyze up to three blood gas samples in succession. With the ABL800 FLEX analyzer’s Drop 'n' Go capability, there's no need to wait at the analyzer for patient results.

The ABL800 FLEX blood gas analyzer allows you to measure a full panel of up to 18 STAT parameters on the same blood sample. This supports fast diagnosis of critically ill patients and reduces the risks and patient discomfort associated with repeated sampling.

More about the ABL800 FLEX analyzer

Reliable creatinine testing

Radiometer America’s advanced creatinine sensor design based on enzymatic amperometric biosensors provides you with accurate and reliable results and is proven to be free of interference from 62 potential substances [1].

Creatinine on the ABL800 FLEX analyzer adheres to the NKDEP guidelines [2].

Optimized for small sample volumes

With the FLEXMODE functionality, the ABL800 FLEX blood gas analyzer is also optimized for capillary tubes, allowing you to reliable results for the most critical parameters from a small neonate sample.

Safe and accurate pH in pleural fluid measurements

The dedicated pH in pleural fluid mode on the ABL800 FLEX analyzer offers a safer and more accurate alternative to pH meters and indicator sticks. According to the ACCP [3] recommendations "pH is the preferred pleural fluid chemistry test and pH must be determined using a blood gas analyzer".

pH in pleural fluid on the ABL800 FLEX analyzer is CE-marked and FDA-cleared, simplifying your validation process.
