EKF Diagnostics to launch sepsis biomarker and POC haemoglobin analyser at Medica 2014.
At Medica 2014, EKF will be exhibiting a new version of its Hemo Control haemoglobin analyser, its Biosen glucose and lactate analyser, as well as previewing SensPoint, a lactate analyser designed for use in professional medical settings.
Identify sepsis earlier
The Liquicolor Procalcitonin liquid-stable assay can be used on most automatic chemistry analysers as an early and specific indicator of sepsis.
Since Procalcitonin (PCT) levels elevate during systemic bacterial infection and sepsis, PCT can be used to quickly assess initial severity of sepsis.
The Liquicolor PCT immunoturbidimetric assay is precise, convenient and cost effective as it is available in a liquid-stable format, which can remain stable on-board a clinical chemistry analyser for up to four weeks, and requires a minimal sample of just 20 µL.
This assay can also improve laboratory workflow as it can be run on a primary chemistry analyser and eliminate the need to split a sample. The reagent kit, calibrator and control sets are all available separately.
Immediate haemoglobin results
EKF Diagnostics will also be showcasing the DiaSpect Tm haemoglobin analyser. This palm-sized point of care analyser is fast, easy to use and reliable in all climate conditions since it combines laboratory quality performance with unmatched measurement speed and extensive battery life.
It utilises reagent-free microcuvettes which are unaffected by humidity, unlike reagent-based systems.
These plexiglass microcuvettes also have a long shelf-life of 2.5 years with no need for refrigeration as they can be stored from 0° to 50°C.
DiaSpect Tm is portable and lightweight at just 185g and has a long battery life of 40 days of continuous use, or 10,000 tests, due to its integrated rechargeable lithium-ion battery.
To see the full range, please visit EKF Diagnostics in Hall 3 on Stand C70 at Medica 2014, 12-15th November, Düsseldorf, Germany.
