Waltham, MA (September 15, 2011) – Nova Biomedical announces the availability of a new blood gas critical care analyzer. pHOx Ultra analyzer offers the most comprehensive features of any whole blood, critical care analyzer. It features the broadest test menu in one analyzer, with 20 user selectable tests including pH, PCO2, PO2, SO2%, Hct, Hb, Na+, K+, iCa, iMg, Cl-, Glucose, BUN, Creatinine, Lactate, CO-Oximetry and tBil. pHOx Ultra’s large, high resolution, color touch screen offers fast and easy operation. Bright color and graphic highlighting provide exceptional readability. Onboard, automated True QC saves time and labor versus manual QC, and assures optimum analyzer performance.

pHOx Ultra’s complete, onboard Data Manager, networking and interface capabilities save thousands of dollars compared to the purchase of a separate data manager. The Data Manager can consolidate multiple, networked pHOx Ultras into a comprehensive database for capture, archiving, and extensive data reporting. It also provides a single HIS/LIS interface for multiple pHOx Ultras throughout a network, saving thousands of dollars in separate interface costs. Remote review and remote control of multiple, network connected analyzers can also be performed from the onboard Data Manager.

Earlier generations of pHOx Ultra analyzers have proven to be accurate and reliable in more than 10,000 installations throughout the world. The 20-test, customizable menu, simple operation, extensive data management and networking, and low cost of operation make this new pHOx Ultra ideal for multiple testing locations including Lab, OR, ICU and ED.
