Industry News: EKF Diagnostics to Showcase Comprehensive Clinical Chemistry Range at AACC 2015

To find out more about their comprehensive range of clinical chemistry, visit them at booth #1018.

16 Jul 2015

EKF Diagnostics, the global diagnostics company, will be highlighting its expanding Stanbio clinical chemistry range at AACC, 26-30 July, Atlanta, Georgia.  This range includes a large selection of clinical chemistry assays, controls and calibrators, which are fully compatible with most major brand open channel chemistry analyzers.

On booth #1018, EKF will discuss the latest additions to its Stanbio range of liquid-stable clinical chemistry reagents (Liquicolor® and Liqui-UV®) which are designed for maximum stability and ease of use. These include the Stanbio Chemistry Glycated Serum Protein (GSP) LiquiColor® test; a new diabetes biomarker test that provides a 2-3 week indicator of average blood glucose,as well as the Stanbio Chemistry Procalcitonin (PCT) LiquiColor® Assay for early sepsis identification.

New for 2015 is EKF’s automated benchtop chemistry analyzer, the Altair240; a high performing and cost effective solution for laboratories, as a main unit or backup. The Altair240 has a user-friendly interface with LIS bi-directional connectivity and can perform up to 240 tests per hour.

EKF will also be highlighting two of its point-of-care (POC) hematology analyzers at AACC. These deliver quick and laboratory accurate results to aid diagnoses of anemia and associated conditions within a variety of near-patient settings, including hospitals, clinics, blood banks and in challenging field-based conditions.

A hand held device delivering results in <2 seconds, DiaSpect Tm is the world’s fastest hemoglobin measurement system offering laboratory quality performance for anemia screening in all climatic conditions. The HemoPoint H2 stores over 4000 patient results, and is designed for use in blood banks, clinics and hospitals and provides immediate lab-quality results for both hemoglobin and hematocrit - from one test. Its proprietary “soft load” cuvette holder is designed to minimize contamination of the meter.

In addition, live demonstrations of EKF’s Quo-Lab, Quo-Test, STAT-Site M B-HB and Lactate Scout will take place at the booth throughout the day.
