50 Individually wrapped Microcuvettes are included with the unit.
Additional Test strips are sold separately individually wrapped or canister style.
HemoCue hemoglobin whole blood systems provide quick, simple, and accurate quantitative hemoglobin results with the same performance as a large hematology analyzer. The dual-wavelength photometers correct for lipemia, leukocytosis and other sources of turbidity.
Any blood source (capillary, venous, or arterial) can be used. The
reliable cuvette collects the exact amount of blood and mixes the
sample with the reagents automatically. Results appear on the display
screen in less than a minute.
Hb 201+: The HemoCue Hb 201+
system is smaller than its predecessor and offers the same important
benefits - simplicity, speed and a small sample volume together with
laboratory precision and accuracy. The HemoCue Hb 201+
has an internal electronic selftest. Each time the analyzer is turned
on, it will automatically verify the performance of the optronic unit.
The test is performed every second hour if the analyzer is on. CLIA
Many women suffer
from anemia, mainly due to pregnancy and heavy menstrual periods,
bleeding fibroids or endometriosis. To detect the presence of anemia,
and assess its severity, measurement of hemoglobin is required. By
using a HemoCue hemoglobin system, the results are available while the
patient is still present and if anemia is detected, sampling for
additional laboratory tests can be performed during the same
appointment. When the anemia is due to nutritional deficiency,
hemoglobin alone provides a sensitive indication of therapeutic
One of the main
causes of anemia in prematurity is the amount of blood removed for
diagnostic tests. Using capillary blood with a HemoCue hemoglobin
system can minimize trauma to pediatric patients. HemoCue hemoglobin
systems utilize only 10 µL capillary, venous or arterial blood. The
systems are portable and sampling can easily take place in an
incubator. When intralipids are added to parental nutrition
preparation, lipemia can occur and interfere with some diagnostic
testing. HemoCue hemoglobin systems measure on two different
wavelengths in order to compensate for turbidity e.g., due to lipids.
are often performed in diagnosing anemia, resulting in patient
treatment delays and increased costs. When distinguishing between
anemia, a normal count and polycythemia, the measurement of hemoglobin
is the most precise, accurate and useful laboratory test. By using a
HemoCue hemoglobin system, the result is available while the patient is
still present and decisions about the patient’s care can be made
immediately. This is ideal for anemia screenings for school physicals.
Anemia is a common
complication of diabetes and many individuals suffer from its symptoms
like fatigue and inactivity. It often goes undiagnosed and untreated
even though it may be one of the earliest signs of renal disease.
Anemia seriously destabilizes not only a patient's health but also
diminishes the quality of their life. Hemoglobin testing at the
point-of-care is a quick and easy way to identify individuals at risk,
allowing for immediate action and subsequent treatment.
