EKF Diagnostics (Cardiff, UK), a global in vitro diagnostics company, highlighted its new Stanbio Chemistry Glycated Albumin (GA) assay kit and its newly FDA cleared DiaSpect Tm hemoglobin point of care (POC) analyzer at the AACC 2018 Clinical Lab Expo held in Chicago, Illinois, from July 29 to August 2. AACC is the world’s largest exposition for clinical laboratory products and services.

EKF Diagnostics manufactures POC and central laboratory technology, including tests for hemoglobin, HbA1c, glucose, lactate and a range of chemistry reagents. The company’s POC blood analyzers aid the diagnosis of anemia, diabetes and associated conditions, and its products are used by healthcare professionals in blood banks, GP surgeries, diabetes clinics, pharmacies, sports medicine, emergency rooms and laboratories.

At AACC 2018, EKF highlighted the Stanbio GA assay, which has FDA 510(k) clearance for sale in the US. The Stanbio Chemistry GA assay uses an enzymatic method with liquid reagents and does not require preparation. It can be used on compatible open channel clinical chemistry analyzers and expresses results as a ratio of GA to Albumin in mmol/mol from a small amount of blood serum.

EKF also demonstrated the use of its newly FDA 510(k) cleared and CLIA waived DiaSpect Tm hemoglobin analyzer at this year’s AACC. DiaSpect Tm analyzes whole blood from a sampling microcuvette designed to collect a blood sample from any angle without forming air bubbles, thus minimizing the need to repeat the testing procedure. DiaSpect Tm delivers lab quality hemoglobin results in about one second of the microcuvette being placed in the analyzer, making it the world’s fastest hemoglobin analyzer and ideal for efficient patient health checks and anemia screening at the POC. The hand-held and reagent free system is suitable and cleared for use in POC and Certificate of Waiver settings, including physician’s offices, clinics and other non-traditional laboratory locations.
