    The smart way to test INR at the Point of Need

CoaguChek® XS Pro


PT/INR Monitoring tailored to hospital point of care testing

  • Barcode reader for faster ID entry
  • Time critical INR results - faster than sending them to the lab

Greater Convenience

Healthcare professionals can measure PT/INR values in approximately 1 minute with a drop of capillary blood (8 µL).

In order to ensure compliance and improve workflows, the system allows patient and operator ID identification with its integrated barcode scanner. Connecting the instrument to the institution’s data management system finally assures safe and efficient patient management

On-the-spot results, no venous sampling

Easy portability; side and top blood dosing options with a capillary sample

Greater Safety

Onboard quality control (QC) for each strip; optional QC lockout to meet potential regulatory requirements; consistent INR results

Greater Workflow Efficiency
