Hemo Control

Hemoglobin analyzer

Simple, accurate and reliable hemoglobin and hematocrit test

Hemo Control is easy to use and delivers results with a CV of <2% for hemoglobin and hematocrit from 25 seconds from one small sample.

The new Hemo Control analyser can now be upgraded with Data Management (DM) functions through purchasing an ‘add pack’. This is ideal for customers who are:

  • Planning future connection of POC devices to LIS but have not yet decided
  • Connection to LIS postponed for budget reasons, option to split costs
  • Facing increasing demands for connectivity and want to keep options open.
The new analyser also has an improved Bi-directional interface using the new LIS2-A2 public standard protocol. This allows direct connection to third party software without the need for Hemo Connect software

The EKF Hemo Control hemoglobin analyser uses the innovative NXT microcuvette technology to deliver a quick and easy sampling procedure that also minimises waste.

NXT microcuvettes have been designed with a large opening to collect the blood sample, meaning that users can hold the cuvette at almost any angle to gather the blood sample from the patient. The NXT microcuvette also features a slot at the rear of the sample chamber that allows trapped air to escape.

Trapped air in a blood sample will deliver inaccurate results, so by getting it right first time the Hemo Control NXT microcuvette keeps costs and patient discomfort to a minimum. Once a sample has been taken the Hemo Control’s built-in ‘soft-load’ microcuvette holder ensures that blood does not splash out when it is inserted into the analyser. This minimises the risk of contaminating the analyser for future use.
