EKF Diagnostics (Cardiff, Wales, UK) showcased its full product range, including the Quo-Test A1c, Quo-Lab A1c, Hemo Control, DiaSpect Tm and Lactate Scout 4 analyzers, at MEDLAB Middle East, which took place from 3-6 February 2020 at the Dubai World Trade Centre. MEDLAB Middle East, the Middle East & North Africa (MENA) region’s largest medical laboratory exhibition and congress, drew over 25,800 medical laboratory industry professionals and 600 exhibitors from 35 countries.

EKF Diagnostics is a global medical manufacturer of point-of-care (POCT) devices and tests for hemoglobin, glycated hemoglobin (HbA1c), glucose and lactate. Its POC analyzers are designed for use within doctors' surgeries, clinics, hospitals and laboratories to provide fast and accurate results at an affordable price. EKF Central Laboratory division manufactures a wide spectrum of reagents for use in hospital laboratories across a broad portfolio of automated and semi-automated analyzers.

Among its Hemoglobin products on display at MEDLAB Middle East were the Hemo Control POC hemoglobin analyzer designed to provide quantitative, lab quality hemoglobin results from 25 seconds; DiaSpect Tm, the world’s fastest hemoglobin analyzer that delivers laboratory quality results in just about one second of the microcuvette being placed into the palm-sized analyzer; and the HemataStat II microhematocrit centrifuge that provides a quantitative hematocrit reading for up to six blood samples from one 60 second spin.

EKF Diagnostics’ Diabetes products on display at this year’s MEDLAB Middle East included the Quo-Lab HbA1c semi-automated desktop POC analyzer for measuring glycated hemoglobin (HbA1c); and the Quo-Test fully automated desktop POC analyzer designed for easy and reliable HbA1c measurement for the monitoring and management of diabetes in a POC setting such as diabetes clinics and doctors’ surgeries. In the Sports segment, EKF Diagnostics displayed the Lactate Scout 4 handheld analyzer that requires a very small blood sample to deliver lactate measurement in 10 seconds and is programmed with step-testing features designed to improve athletic performance over time.
