EKF Diagnostics to introduce new connectivity solution for A1c POC analysers

Scientific Company News

EKF Diagnostics has announced plans to introduce a new point-of-care (POC) connectivity solution for its Quo-Test and Quo-Lab HbA1c analysers.

The company will be previewing the new offering at this year's Medica industry conference, which will be held in Dusseldorf from November 14th to 17th, and will take the opportunity to talk through the benefits it can provide for laboratory staff.

“EKF Diagnostics is demonstrating a new point-of-care connectivity solution for its range of HbA1c analysers at Medica 2016.“

Enabling secure bidirectional communication between its POC analysers and various central data management systems, the new connectivity package includes a proprietary connector interface box, cables and a software upgrade.

It uses the POCT1-A2 communication protocol to help improve security and quality control for diabetic blood glucose testing, with data automatically transmitted to lab information management systems or hospital information systems.

Traceability and results recall speed are improved by the use of patient identification information and a wider range of demographic data. Security and quality control is enhanced through user ID and lockout functions included in the connectivity package.

Gavin Jones, diabetes product manager for EKF Diagnostics, said: "Our Quo-Lab and Quo-Test analysers deliver lab-quality results for HbA1c from four microlitres of blood within four minutes, enabling the consulting clinician to give immediate feedback to a patient."
