In this section you will find information about devices for point-of-care testing of various analytes. For most tests there are often several instruments to choose from and depending upon the test, certain features such as their accuracy and precision, are of critical importance.
This is the case for glycated haemoglobin or HbA1c where we provide a comprehensive register showing how the various available devices compare and the type of performance that is required from a device that is fit for the purpose of monitoring patient HbA1c levels in diabetic patients.
