epoc Blood Analysis System

epoc® Reader and Host2
Mobile Computer

The epoc® Reader and Host2 Mobile Computer devices work together to bring you the right result at the right time. The nearly instantaneous delivery of BGEM (blood gases, electrolytes, and metabolites) results at the bedside enables you to make immediate treatment decisions that may lead to improved patient outcomes.              

Simply insert the Test Card into the epoc® Reader and obtain a blood sample from the patient. Once fresh blood passes across the biosensors on the epoc® Test Card, results are sent to the epoc® Host2 Mobile Computer. The test result is then communicated instantaneously and wirelessly via Bluetooth® to your EDM, LIS and EMR.
