HL7 Interface for Nova Biomedical Glucose Meters

Scan patients barcoded labels/bracelets and perform the Glucose testing. Once the testing is completed and the Meter is docked, the test results are automatically uploaded to the patients’ Electronic Health Records (EHR).

The Nova StatStrip™ point-of-care glucose monitor enables bedside glucose testing with analytical performance that approaches the quality of central laboratory testing. StatStrip’s 6-second analysis time, color touch screen operation, and simple operating steps make bedside glucose testing fast and easy. Its small, 1.2 microliter sample size results in easy sample acquisition and minimal pain for the patient.

StatStrip incorporates four well glucose measuring strip technologies. Nova’s exclusive Multi-Well™ system measures and corrects hematocrit interference as well as interferences from acetaminophen (Tylenol), uric acid, ascorbic acid (Vitamin C), maltose, galactose, xylose, and lactose. StatStrip eliminates oxygen interference for accurate glucose results regardless of the sample’s oxygen status.

StatStrip requires no calibration coding, avoiding another potential source of error. An incorrect input of a calibration code can change the reported glucose value by up to 40%.
