Radiometer Releases ABL80 FLEX CO-OX Portable Analyzer for Sale in the United States

WESTLAKE, Ohio, Sept. 15 (HSMN NewsFeed) -- Radiometer has announced the U.S. commercial release of its ABL80 FLEX CO-OX, a portable blood gas analyzer that brings Radiometer's trusted CO-oximetry technology to the point of care.

The ABL80 FLEX CO-OX matches the CO-oximetry performance of Radiometer's benchtop analyzers, representing Radiometer's commitment to providing quality solutions for both laboratory and point-of-care testing.
