EKF Diagnostics (Cardiff, Wales, UK) showcased its recently launched STAT-Site WB β-ketone and glucose handheld analyzer at this year’s MEDICA, the world's largest medical trade fair for medical technology, electromedical equipment, laboratory equipment, diagnostics and pharmaceuticals.. More than 5,000 exhibitors from 70 countries presented their newest products and ideas at the MEDICA 2021 Trade Fair held in Düsseldorf, Germany from 15-18th November. The event also drew more than 120,000 trade visitors from over 170 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.

MEDICA 2021 became the venue for the first public viewing of the new STAT-Site WB β-ketone and glucose handheld analyzer in Europe since its global launch earlier this year. The STAT-Site WB analyzer from EKF is used for the quantitative determination of β-ketones (Beta-Hydroxybutyrate or β-HB) and glucose in whole blood taken from capillary or venous samples. The STAT-Site WB analyzer uses two different strips to provide results in just ten seconds for β-ketones and five seconds for glucose allowing for clear and comprehensive management of diabetes patients displaying early symptoms of ketosis to be quickly treated and then monitored on a regular basis.

EKF also demonstrated its globally successful PrimeStore MTM (Molecular Transport Medium) molecular transport media that gives the user a “snapshot” in time for that sample by preserving and stabilizing DNA and RNA. PrimeStore MTM was designed and optimized for molecular testing allowing pathogenic samples to be collected, transported, and processed safely and efficiently. The molecular transport medium inactivates infectious biological pathogens including viruses, and gram-positive/negative bacteria whilst preserving and stabilizing labile DNA and RNA for downstream molecular applications.

In addition to PrimeStore MTM, EKF also demonstrated new product innovations relating to the future control of COVID-19, including the COVID-SeroKlir SARS-CoV-2 IgG antibody IVD kit. The Kantaro COVID-SeroKlir kit is a direct ELISA for the quantitative detection of human IgG antibodies to the SARS-CoV-2 virus in serum and plasma (K2-EDTA/Li-Heparin) samples. COVID-SeroKlir is a two-step enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) and can be used by any certified laboratory without the need for proprietary equipment.
