Research and Markets: Who are the Leaders in Developing and Marketing Blood Gas Instrumentation Data Management Systems?

DUBLIN, Ireland -- Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of Blood Gas Instrumentation Data Management Systems to their offering

Blood gas analyzer technology continues to evolve, moving more of the capabilities of the acute-care laboratory closer to the patient's bedside. Devices that originally provided only measurements of blood gases can now determine other critical-care analytes. In addition to the traditional "chem- 7," some of these analyzers provide calcium, magnesium, bilirubin, lactate, or coagulation (PT, PTT, ACT) determinations.

This report examines the current state of data analysis and management for clinical laboratory instruments, with a particular emphasis on blood gas instruments. The two most important areas where such tests are measured are in the hospital and the clinic. The third place where these tests are measured are in physician office labs (POLs). Newer areas of testing interest for these analytes are satellite labs and remote testing locations.

The emphasis in this report is on those companies and products that are actively developing and marketing instrumentation and supplies for performing managing data in the near patient environment. The information in this report is based upon interviews with sales and marketing professionals of companies in the clinical laboratory instrument market.
