Easy-to-use INR meter for anyone
The CoaguChek XS system is an easy-to-use, convenient and portable device that allows you to self-test your INR at home or anywhere that life may take you. Here are just a few reasons that the CoaguChek XS meter is not only our top choice but also doctors’ and their patients who require Coumadin or warfarin monitoring:
- Accurate — The CoaguChek XS system is 97% accurate compared to a venous draw lab result using the tilt-tube method. It’s the same exact meter used in cardiology offices, anticoagulation clinics, and it provides consistent results time and time again regardless of whether used for self-testing or in office testing.
- Less Blood — The coaguchek XS system only requires a s small 8 microliter sample of blood compared to a venous blood. A specially designed single use safety lancing device gets the small drop of blood required from your fingertip.
- Easy to use interface — With a two-button operation, automatic power-on with insertion of a test trip, and a large sample site to apply the blood helps to simplify testing. The large, easy-to-read screen helps to reduce the chance of misreading a result and our Quick Start guide has 6 quick and easy steps to follow along with.
- No long waits for results — Know your INR level in about one minute following blood application to the test strip.
- Lightweight and portable — Test from the comfort of home, while traveling, or when you’re out and about, virtually anywhere life may take you.
- Training and continued support — A professional CoaguChek XS trainer will teach you how to self-test your INR with the meter and then ongoing customer support is available whenever you are in need.
- Reliable before and after surgery — The blood thinner heparin is frequently used to manage clotting that can be caused by surgical procedures, and this can affect your PT/INR results. CoaguChek XS test strips are insensitive to specified levels of heparin in your blood, to help your doctor gauge the effectiveness of your warfarin dose.
- Never pre-owned meter — ACS is a Roche approved distributor and every meter is brand new and monitors are never “recertified” or pre-owned. You can be confident that your CoaguChek XS meter from Advanced Cardio Services is factory new.
- Insurance coverage — For many patients on long-term Coumadin or warfarin therapy, home INR testing supplies, training and service are covered under Medicare Part B and private insurances. Call Advanced Cardio Services and we can quickly provide you with a quote of insurance benefits.
