Abbott i-STAT CG8+ cartridge update

Abbott CG8 Removed
NSW Health Pathology has been advised by Abbott Point of Care, manufacturer and supplier of the i-STAT device, of an instability issue with the ionized calcium (iCa) test on the CG8+ cartridge.

Until this is resolved, iCa will be switched off on this cartridge type to avoid possible impact on patient diagnosis and treatment.  At present, it appears the iCa test on the CHEM8+ cartridge is unaffected and will remain an option.

We apologise for any inconvenience.
