Optimized workflow in HbA1c determination with on-board hemolysis

In order to process whole blood samples by on-board hemolysis, analyzers need to fulfill specific requirements. It needs to be ensured that samples with sedimented erythrocytes will be determined correctly. Therefore, immersion depth of the sample probe is  a critical issue. Moreover an extensive washing of the sample probe must be performed in order to avoid undesired carryover.

In common analyzers, even if they are capable of on-board hemolysis, immersion depth of sample probe is not adequate to reach sedimented erythrocytes. A manual hemolyzing step is necessary.
