How do the CoaguChek XS Pro and CoaguChek XS Plus systems differ?

The key difference is the presence of an integrated barcode scanner located on the side of the meter. This scanner is used to capture
patient and operator IDs from printed barcodes. This enhances safety and eases workflows in busy settings. All CoaguChek systems use the same test strip and provide the same consistently accurate results.

How long can a strip be out of the vial before testing?

Open vial stability is up to 10 minutes maximum. Having the strip out of the vial for too long, especially in high-humidity or
high-temperature environments, could damage the integrity of the strip. This would be detected by the onboard quality controls, and result in a QC error message. If a strip is compromised, no INR is displayed, eliminating the risk of incorrect results.

Can the strip be redosed if too little blood has been applied?

Because coagulation begins immediately, the strip cannot be
redosed. If a blood sample is insufficient, they will need to run a new test with a new strip and a blood sample from a different finger.

What if blood is applied before the meter is ready?

An error message will appear on the screen and a new test must be performed using a new test strip and a different finger.

What if a test strip has expired?

The code key provided with each vial of test strips helps ensure that expired strips are not used. If the test strip has expired, an error appears on the display and the test will not proceed.

Is there anything that might interfere with the CoaguChek test?

Please refer to the latest test strip package insert for a list of
interfering substances and other system limitations.
