Blood glucose and urine albumin testing at the point-of-care, with laboratory accurate results
Every ten seconds someone dies of diabetes. At almost the same rate, another two individuals develop diabetes. That means every year, there are about 7 million new diabetics in the world. More efficient methods of screening, diagnosing and monitoring diabetes can improve the lives of diabetics and prevent complications. Point-of-care testing products from HemoCue® give you immediate test results with an accuracy and precision normally only available in a laboratory.
When you send blood glucose test samples to a central laboratory there is always a risk of glycolysis, something that can cause incorrect test results. This risk can be eliminated if you use the HemoCue® Glucose systems. They deliver laboratory accurate results immediately, at the point-of-care.
Making it easier and more convenient to perform reliable glucose tests might even allow you to prevent diabetes. When you have the possibility to identify individuals at risk of developing diabetes, you can help them avoid the disease by changing their lifestyle.

Albumin in the urine is known to be an early marker of cardiovascular and renal complications.
Early detection of microalbuminuria will allow you an opportunity to start treatment in time to avoid complications such as kidney failure. It can even reduce morbidity and premature mortality otherwise associated with these complications.
With HemoCue® Albumin systems you get the results quickly, at the point-of-care. These results with laboratory accuracy enables you to make the right decision in time to help your patient.
