A revolution in HbA1c measurement
Quo-Lab® HbA1c 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® HbA1c can store over 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.
Quo-Lab analyzers and tests are calibrated and quality controlled using European Reference Laboratory supplied materials that are traceable to the IFCC reference method.
