Cardiff, United Kingdom (PressExposure) June 03, 2013 -- EKF Diagnostics, the point-of-care diagnostics business, has announced the global launch of a new strip-based test for quick and easy hemoglobin analysis for anemia determination. STAT-Site M Hgb, a hand-held analyzer that combines low cost per test with portability, will be introduced at ISBT (International Society of Blood Transfusion), Amsterdam, 2-5 June 2013, Stand 128.
STAT-Site M Hgb is a pocket-sized device that reliably delivers accurate hemoglobin analysis results within 30 seconds from 15 L of finger-prick whole blood. This hemoglobin photometer is maintenance-free, and whilst guarantees optimum performance and reliability. Intuitive, step by step on-screen instructions minimise training and ensures ease of use.
Due to its durability, portability and user-friendliness, STAT-Site M Hgb is especially suited to blood screening programmes in developing world markets, but it also has a niche in settings where operators are mobile. Using just one 3V Li type battery for every 1,000 tests and with an operating temperature range of 16° to 35°C, the analyzer is ideal for field use.
At ISBT, EKF will also be demonstrating its Hemo Control (sold as HemoPoint H2 in USA and Asia) hemoglobin analyzer designed to provide quantitative, lab quality results (imprecision http://www.ekfdiagnostics.com.
