Provides a complete picture of quality for each sample

New Intraspect technology, iQM2 performs continuous checks—before, during and after every sample, providing real-time detection, immediate correction and automatic documentation.  The all-in-one, multi-use GEM PAK eliminates outside variables, ensures errors are known and limited, and predicts errors through patented pattern recognition software. A continuous cycle of 5 quality checks provides intelligent analysis, regardless of point-of-care operator, time or place.

  • Automatic real-time detection
    Performs continuous checks—before, during and after every sample, using five types of continuous quality checks performed throughout GEM PAK use-life. New IntraSpect technology offers quality checks during every sample analysis.
  • Immediate, automatic correction and documentation
    Initiates intelligent corrective actions, if any sensor, CO-Ox, system-stability or sample error, is detected specific to source of error. Documents all actions in real-time; no manual documentation required, minimizing regulatory requirement efforts.

iQM2 reduces error detection time from hours to minutes*

iQM2 detected common pre-analytical errors in patient samples

Review of point-of-care testing data at Derriford Hospital (Plymouth, UK) found that the GEM Premier 5000 system with iQM2 automatically identified pre-analytical sources of errors with real-time operator notification. These errors may have gone undetected using traditional forms of quality control.
