Next Generation HbA1c Test Available from Carolina Liquid Chemistries for Use on Beckman Synchron Chemistry Analyzers


6/7/2011 9:54:09 AM

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (June 7, 2011) – Carolina Liquid Chemistries is proud to introduce Direct HbA1c in pre-filled cartridges for use on Beckman Synchron CX®, DX® and LX® chemistry analyzers. This assay has no interference from hemoglobin variants including HbC, HbS, HbE, and caramylated acetylated Hb or labile HbA1c.

Each Direct HbA1c kit includes two 90-test HbA1c cartridges and 30 mL of lyse. Also available are whole blood HbA1c controls. Unlike Synchron HbA1c synthetic controls, this preferred format ensures that dilution and lysing are done properly. Calibration is stable for 14 days. This direct HbA1c method correlates precisely with HPLC and is approved by NGSP.

Being a direct method means that HbA1c is determined directly and does not depend on a calculation using a hemoglobin and an A1c result. Avoiding the need for running two assays to get only one result means that Carolina Liquid Chemistries’ HbA1c finishes faster and frees up space on the reagent carousel, thus increasing on-board reagent capacity.

Other diabetic tests offered by Carolina Liquid Chemistries specific for Synchron analyzers include: Glucose, Fructosamine, GlycoMark (1,5 Anhydroglucitol), Insulin and MicroAlbumin.

Carolina Liquid Chemistries’ nationwide staff of service engineers allows the company to sell service contracts for Synchron CX®, DX® and LX® analyzers, offering significantly discounted service contract prices to reagent customers using its complete line of bar-coded, liquid, ready-to-use reagents. For more information about reagents or service for Beckman Synchron chemistry analyzers, call (877) 722-8910 or send an e-mail to contactsales@carolinachemistries.com.
