POC diabetes management

The DCA Vantage Analyser from Siemens Medical Solutions Diagnostics is a user-friendly, point-of-care (POC) patient management platform for diabetes.

 It provides glycosylated haemoglobin (HbA1c), microalbumin/creatinine and albumin-to-creatinine tests. Physicians can enter a patient ID, via the touch screen or barcode, view on-board printed reports and graphs of HbA1c trends.
The system is network-ready. Test results can be shared within the office, clinic, among coordinated POC or can be easily uploaded to an external healthcare information technology (HIT) system.

Besides glycaemic control the microalbumin/creatinine measuring capability of DCA Vantage helps physicians by early detection of kidney disease, a common complication of diabetes. The onboard glomerular filtration rate (GFR) calculator assists in kidney disease staging.
