EKF Diagnostics introduces new POC hemoglobin analyzer

UK-based diagnostics company EKF Diagnostics has launched the DiaSpect Tm point of care (POC) hemoglobin analyzer at Medica 2014, which was held in Düsseldorf, Germany.


The new palm-sized analyzer can be used in all climate conditions. It uses reagent-free microcuvettes that are unaffected by humidity and can be stored from 0° to 50°C.

According to the company, DiaSpect is portable and lightweight and holds a long battery life of 40 days of continuous use, or 10,000 tests, due to its integrated rechargeable lithium-ion battery.

DiaSpect undertakes an automatic self-check between every measurement and is factory calibrated against the HiCN reference method in accordance with ICSH.

The company also showcased a new version of its Hemo Control hemoglobin analyzer, a Biosen glucose and lactate analyzer, at the event.

In addition, EKF has previewed new lactate analyzer SensPoint, developed for use in professional medical settings.
