Hemo Control Hemoglobin Analyzer

Simple, accurate and reliable hemoglobin and hematocrit measurement in three easy steps

EKF Diagnostics’ Hemo Control is a point-of-care hemoglobin analyzer designed to provide quantitative, lab quality hemoglobin results from 25 seconds.

Hemo Control uses the most established photometric azide methemoglobin method ensuring reliable results with a high precision (CV <2%).

Hemo Control is used in blood banks, hospitals and doctors’ offices for routine screening for anaemia. And, due to its backlit screen, a soft-load cuvette holder and integrated rechargeable battery, it is the perfect analyzer for stationary use and mobile settings.

In addition to providing hemoglobin measurement Hemo Control also calculates hematocrit.

The Hemo Control analyzer features a bi-directional interface using a public standard protocol that allows direct integration with third party software. 
Advanced data management functions are available with the Hemo Control Manager version of the device and  the basic Hemo Control device can be upgraded with data management functions at a later point of time (a unique market feature).

The ‘Add Pack’ Data management is an ideal future option for customers who plan for an implementation into a hospital or lab information system but are not yet in a position to do so for technological or budgetary reasons.

EKF's Hemo Connect and Hemo Connect Light software remain available for customers who wish to use data management and data export functions, independent from LIS integration.

Biosen C-Line & Biosen S-Line

Lab accurate glucose and lactate measurement in one test

The Biosen series of glucose analyzers include three different models and are a familiar brand name in laboratories and diabetes clinics.

Biosen analyzers can be manufactured as single channel glucose systems or as dual channel systems that can measure lactate at the same time.

Biosen uses a special chip sensor technology to deliver fast measurements with a high degree of accuracy at a low cost per test. Due to the long life of the sensor chip the system requires little maintenance, features such as the touch screen and large memory only add to the Biosen analyzer’s user-friendliness.

All Biosen analyzers are supplied with an interface to connect to hospital or lab information systems (LIS). An integrated barcode reader and printer are also available with most configurations.
Biosen can test blood, plasma or serum to provide glucose and lactate values with excellent precision (less than >2% CV) over a wide measurement range.

Quo-Lab™ A1c

A revolution in HbA1c measurement

Quo-Lab™ A1c is a desktop point-of-care analyzer for measuring glycated hemoglobin (HbA1c).

The semi-automated analyzer has been designed specifically to meet the needs of diabetes clinics and laboratories in settings that demand low cost of operation and ease of use.

From a simple procedure, Quo-Lab™ provides lab-accurate test results within four minutes (CV < 3% at 7% A1c) from a venous or finger prick blood sample of just 4 μl. Quo-Lab™ uses the same boronate affinity methodology used by Quo-Test and is similarly unaffected by Hb variants.
Step by step instructions are displayed on a clear, multi-lingual display. Staff training time can therefore be minimised and the opportunity for error is reduced.

Quo-Lab can store up to 7,000 results which can be downloaded as text files to a PC via the integrated USB interface. Alternatively results can be printed using a printer which connects via a serial port.

Quo-Lab™ has received its CE mark and is available for sale in most global markets subject to local registration requirements.

Immediate hemoglobin results from a hand-held analyzer

EKF Diagnostics’ DiaSpect Tm is the world’s fastest hemoglobin analyzer. DiaSpect Tm delivers laboratory quality results in just about one second of the microcuvette being placed into the analyzer.

The analyzer is palm-sized, making it easily transportable, and because it has no moving parts it can be used in any screening setting in any environment.

DiaSpect’s ‘always-on’ technology means that professionals can start to use the device immediately and the rechargeable internal battery, which provides up to 40 days continuous use, provides the flexibility of not needing a power source for weeks at a time.

The microcuvettes have a shelf life of up to two and a half years and can be used until the expiration date, even after opening the bag. This makes them ideal for settings with low prevalence of anemic patients. 
The microcuvettes are unaffected by humidity or temperature and are therefore particularly suited for use in hot and humid climates. 

In addition, they are designed to collect a blood sample from any angle without forming air bubbles; this feature ensures that the need for repeating the testing procedure is minimised.

DiaSpect Hemoglobin T Low

Precise plasma hemoglobin measurement in less than two seconds

EKF Diagnostics’ DiaSpect Hemoglobin T Low is designed for the quantitative determination of low levels of hemoglobin in plasma and serum specimens, aqueous solutions, or stored or banked erthrocytes.

The analyzer has a measuring range between 0.3 and 30.0 g/L (0.03 - 3.0 g/dL) and, because its based on the standard T analyzer, it delivers laboratory quality results within one - two seconds of the microcuvette being placed into the analyzer.

Applications for the DiaSpect Hemoglobin T Low include:

To check the quality of stored blood samples. Hemoglobin leakage into plasma is a sign of sample degradation or ageing
To establish the degree of purification of plasma samples
Research applications
The DiaSpect Hemoglobin T Low has a high quality color display with excellent readability and a "magic touch"self-closing cuvette holder, which avoids contamination of the device optics.

The microcuvettes have a shelf life of up to two and a half years and can be used until the expiration date, even after opening the bag. This makes them ideal for settings with low test volumes. The microcuvettes are unaffected by humidity or temperature and are therefore particularly suited for use in hot and humid climates.
