Allegro is a compact, point-of-care (POC) analyzer that features a clinically important menu of 12 measured and individually selectable tests, plus 6 calculated tests. All tests are measured with disposable, ready-to-use cartridges or test strips, and are easily performed by nontechnical personnel.
Allegro uses a very small capillary blood drop for all blood tests, which eliminates the need for venepuncture or a trained phlebotomist. With cartridge test times of 6 to 9 minutes and the ability to measure two cartridges simultaneously, Allegro provides rapid results. Having results during the patient visit—not after—is more effective for patient/clinician meetings; reduces off ice calls, letters, and follow-up visits; and improves patient compliance with care recommendations.
