The cobas h 232 meter is an instrument for the quantitative evaluation of immunoassays using the gold-labeling technique. The rapid diagnostic tests in strip format available for this meter support efficient diagnosis and assessment of cardiovascular diseases. The evaluation of these tests with the cobas h 232 meter combines the advantages of a rapid diagnosis with enhanced clinical interpretation of quantitative values (in comparison with qualitative tests). In addition, automated evaluation provides more reliable results by eliminating the potential sources of error associated with visual reading. Refer to the package inserts accompanying the test strips for detailed information on specific tests.
Readings may be carried out directly where the blood samples are taken. Therefore, the cobas h 232 meter is ideal for use at the point of care in emergency rooms, intensive care units and ambulances, as well as by cardiologists and general practitioners. The cobas h 232 meter is rapid and easy to operate: Insert an unused strip in the meter and apply the sample. After the reaction period, the meter provides a quantitative result; in addition, a qualitative result is provided prior to the end of some tests.
The cobas h 232 meter has the ability to connect to a data management system (DMS) by means of wireless communication (if the meter is equipped with WLAN functionality) or through the Handheld Base Unit from Roche Diagnostics (available separately). This price of medical equipment (cobas h 232 meter) supports data exchange via the POCT1A standard. Data management systems may have the ability to expand the security features of the meter, such as enabling operator lockouts. Data management systems may also enable data transfer to an LIS or HIS. Refer to the manuals of the Handheld Base Unit and of your DMS for technical details.
