EKF Diagnostics announces the enhanced DiaSpect Tm, a lightweight, handheld hemoglobin analyzer that now connects securely to EKF Link, EKF’s point-of-care (POC) middleware. The updated analyzer includes additional features such as a calculated hematocrit value and data management. Storing test results for secure accessibility on a centralized platform, the enhanced DiaSpect Tm is also equipped with Bluetooth and internal storage for 4,000 tests and QC results. Patient and operator identification allow for improved tracking of both staff competence and test results, and a Quality Control reminder function aids in compliance with local regulations. Designed to be user-friendly and require minimal training, the system is factory calibrated against the HiCN reference method, so no calibration is required, and turbidity is also measured and compensated for. Its reagent-less microcuvettes offer up to 2.5 years’ shelf life, even after opening, and are unaffected by temperature and humidity. The analyzer’s always-on technology enables immediate use, and the rechargeable internal battery provides up to 40 days/10,000 tests of continuous use.
