Published: May 10, 2010
"Diazyme's new SMART HbA1c Assay provides a convenient and cost effective test method which will benefit laboratories, physicians and the patients they care for," said Dr. Chong Yuan, Managing Director of Diazyme Laboratories. In addition to HbA1c, the SMART Point of Care System offers the capability to run tests for monitoring renal function as well as cardiac risk assessment. Additional assays in development for the SMART Point of Care System include Cystatin C, which has been shown to be a more reliable marker than creatinine for early detection of acute and chronic kidney disease, and Enzymatic Homocysteine and high sensitivity hsCRP, both of which are important biomarkers for cardiac and stroke risk assessment.
