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 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 lab quality accuracy and precision.
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. The delay and risk can be eliminated if you use the HemoCue® Glucose systems. They deliver laboratory accurate results immediately, at the point of care.
Elevated levels of albumin in the urine is known to be an early marker of renal complications. Early detection of albuminuria will allow you an opportunity to (let you) 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. Do you want to know more about detecting albuminuria at the point of care?
