DiaSpect haemoglobin analyser now has smartphone app


EKF Diagnostics, the global in vitro diagnostics company, has introduced POC Connect – a data management smartphone application for its DiaSpect Tm haemoglobin analyzer. DiaSpect Tm is the only reagentfree haemoglobin analyzer with mobile connectivity. Lightweight and palm-sized, the DiaSpect Tm analyzer delivers laboratory quality haemoglobin results within 2 seconds at the point-of-care (POC). Now with the availability of POC Connect, this makes it ideal for mobile health checks and anaemia screening in a range of locations, environments and climatic conditions.

The new POC Connect mobile app is the world’s first mobile data management solution for a reagent-free haemoglobin testing device. It is a simple android application that enables the storage, access and transmission of haemoglobin results directly from the DiaSpect Tm analyzer to a smartphone via Bluetooth technology. DiaSpect Tm can be purchased with integrated Bluetooth, meaning there is no need to purchase an additional external Bluetooth dongle.

This new POC solution will prove useful in countries with challenging environmental and geographical conditions where remote haemoglobin testing and access to internet can be diffi cult. All that is needed is an android phone and DiaSpect Tm device to record haemoglobin results with dates and times and then add unique identifi ers, such as Patient ID, User ID, QC information, Cuvette LOT numbers, and comments. Data is synched and stored on the smartphone in a history list for easy access. Data can then be transferred at any time as a protected CSV fi le and added to a central database or lab information system (LIS) as required.

Hand held and portable, DiaSpect Tm is ideal for POCT not only due to its unmatched measurement speed, but also through its extensive battery life of 40 days continuous use, and up to 10,000 tests, without need for a recharge. Additionally, its reagent-free microcuvettes have up to 2.5 years shelf life, even after opening, and are unaffected by temperature or humidity. These disposable cuvettes can be storedfrom 0 to 50°C, meaning temperature controlled storage is not necessary – short term storage is even possible at 30°C to 70°C for 24 hours. This makes the device highly suited for testing in remote and/or hot and humid environmental conditions, or sites with low test volumes.

DiaSpect Tm is easy to use, requiring minimal training, as the user simply collects a capillary or venous blood sample of in the microcuvette before inserting straight into the analyzer. Also making it perfect for POCT use in all locations, DiaSpect Tm is factory calibrated against the HiCN reference method in accordance with ICSH. No re-calibration or maintenance is needed, and it undertakes an automatic self-check between every measurement.

Packaging solutions for medical products and pharmaceuticals

MULTIVAC’s packaging machines can be individually confi gured as stand-alone systems or as automated lines, and they can be adapted to the specifi c requirements of the particular application.

Konica Minolta introduces HD, wireless, portable DR system

An extremely high-defi nition wireless portable DR system, the AeroDR HD from Konica Minolta is the new flagship model AeroDR series that is ideal for use in a wider range of environments, including at the patient’s bedside, in ICUs, emergency departments and operating rooms as well as radiography rooms.

With a sensor panel sampling pitch (pixel size) of only 100 ìm, the AeroDR HD detector delivers outstanding resolution which is among the highest in the world. For example, this allows orthopedists to capture far clearer images of fi ne structures such as the trabecular bone even when enlarged, thus contributing to enhanced diagnostic accuracy.

Moreover, because of its high DQE, the AeroDR HD can reduce dose by 62% compared to CR.

The AeroDR HD is also characterized by enhanced durability in terms of load and bending resistance. The detector can operate 100% wireless and is compatible with any existing X-ray room. Needless to say, a retrofi t solution is an excellent economic alternative to digitize an X-ray room instead of purchasing a complete new room.
