Optimized workflow in HbA1c determination with onboard hemolysis
In order to process whole blood samples by onboard 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.
Analyzers which are capable to do onboard hemolysis, immersion depth of sample probe is insufficient to reach sedimented erythrocytes. A manual hemolyzing step is necessary.
Respons®910 lowers needle by 10 mm before sample collection. Therefore it can access sedimented erythrocytes ensuring reliable results.
BioMajesty® - The optimized design of the sample probe allows aspiration of the sample from the bottom of the test tube, where erythrocytes sediment.
