Nova’s Stat Profile Prime, 10-test critical care analyzer, features no-maintenance cartridge technology. Our Allegro™ (CE mark only) analyzer provides 9 selectable, measured tests to monitor glycemic control effectiveness and make therapeutic adjustments. StatStrip LAC and CRE meters provide rapid POC monitoring of sepsis and kidney function screening.


 Press Releases

  • Waltham, MANova Biomedical is pleased to announce that the StatStrip Glucose Hospital Meter System has been cleared by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for fingerstick capillary testing with critically ill patients (K181043). StatStrip is the only glucose meter to earn this clearance and can now be used with arterial, venous, or capillary specimens from all patients including critically ill. The use of any other meter with critically ill patients is considered off label by the FDA and high complexity testing by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services under the Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (CLIA).

    The FDA granted 510(k) clearance to StatStrip for capillary testing with critically ill patients following extensive prospective and retrospective studies performed at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN, and Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center in Baltimore, MD. The submission data comprised 16,778 patients ranging from one month to 106 years old, all who were receiving intensive medical intervention/therapy in critical and intensive care settings including burn, cardiac, medical, orthopedic, neurological, and surgical.

    StatStrip’s capillary results were equivalent to the arterial and venous plasma results measured on a central laboratory IDMS traceable reference method. The FDA clearance indicates that StatStrip is safe, effective, and reliable for use by CLIA-waived operators with critically ill patients.

    StatStrip’s glucose technology is the primary reason for the clinically acceptable agreement between the capillary and plasma glucose results. StatStrip is the only glucose technology for point-of-care testing (POCT) that measures and corrects for abnormal hematocrit and has no clinically significant interferences, which can lead to the mismanagement of critically ill patients.

    Capillary specimens are easy to collect and the least invasive glucose test at the point of care. Capillary specimens provide benefits such as rapid and actionable glucose results for immediate glycemic assessment and intervention, saving time for health care providers and improving safety and outcomes for patients. StatStrip’s new capillary clearance eliminates the need for hospitals using StatStrip to define “critically ill.” Hospitals using other glucose meters cannot test critically ill patients with those devices with any specimen type (arterial, capillary, or venous); such use is considered off label.

    In 2014, StatStrip became the only glucose meter to receive FDA clearance for arterial,  venous, neonatal arterial, and neonatal heel stick use in all hospital and all professional healthcare settings including with critically ill patients (K132121), based upon a multicenter, four-year, prospective study conducted at five prestigious university medical centers. In that study, whole blood glucose measurements of 1,698 critically ill patients spanning 257 different medical conditions and over 8,000 medications were found to be equivalent to plasma glucose central laboratory IDMS traceable methods.
