CoaguChek® XS system
Coagulation self-testing made easy


The CoaguChek® XS instrument is for healthcare professionals and their patients to enable PoCT for INR (International Normalized Ratio) from a drop of capillary whole blood – simple, fast, easy to use and reliable.

Simple finger prick test

  • A small 8 μL drop of capillary blood (finger prick) or venous blood
  • Increased convenience as strips can be stored at room temperature

Fast, reliable results

  • On the spot PT/INR results in one minute
  • Built-in quality control checks every strip automatically
  • Lab-equivalent accuracy precision1

Improved patient outcomes

  • Frequent testing allows side effects to be minimised and increases the time spent within the therapeutic range 2
