EKF Diagnostics' Quo-Test™ analyzer has been designed for easy and reliable HbA1c measurement for the monitoring and management of diabetes in a point-of-care setting such as diabetes clinics and doctors’ surgeries.
The Quo-Test HbA1c is a fully automated hemoglobin A1c analyzer that uses patented boronate fluorescence quenching technology to measure glycated hemoglobin from a 4 μl sample taken from a finger prick or venous whole blood.
Sample results are available within four minutes and are reported in IFCC and DCCT standard units (Mono S & JDS reporting are also available). Quo-Test is unaffected by most hemoglobin variants.
Quo-Test 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.
Step by step instructions are displayed on the analyzers clear, multi-lingual display. Staff training time can therefore be minimized and the opportunity for error is reduced.
Quo-Test is CE marked for the monitoring of HbA1c in diabetes patients.
