This is not the most advanced device out there, but it’s surely slicker than a hematocrit centrifuge. Stanbio Laboratory out of Boerne, Texas has received FDA approval for the firm’s Hemopoint H2 hemoglobin and hematocrit test system. The unit promises results within one minute from an 8 µL sample.
Using a single drop of blood, Stanbio’s HemoPoint® H2 offers accurate results for both hemoglobin and hematocrit (calculated) tests—in less than a minute! The easy-to-read touch screen displays the current time, battery status and allows for easy operation.
Utilizing proven microcuvette technology, the HemoPoint® H2 features a pr oprietary “soft load” cuvette holder to minimize blood contamination of the meter. The hemoglobin result is flagged if it is outside the user-defined limits.
The HemoPoint® H2’s user-friendly sampling technique minimizes training time and its rechargeable battery makes it completely mobile. Recall the last 100 test results with the touch of a button and attach an optional printer to record patient’s test results—immediately, or from stored memory!
