Benefits for your patients

Better patient compliance

Compared with laboratory testing, POC HbA1c testing has been shown to significantly increase the proportion of patients achieving their diabetes glycaemic control.1

Combined testing

The cobas b 101 system includes tests for glycated haemoglobin (HbA1c), lipid panel and C-reactive protein (CRP) on the same device.

Simple and easy sample collection

Direct blood sample application onto disc from a finger prick, with no need for tubes or pipettes for sample collection or transfer. Test discs can be conveniently stored at room temperature (2-30ºc).

Fast turnaround time

HbA1c result in 5 mins. On the spot results in just 3 simple steps. Dual testing from one finger prick sample allows for HbA1c test and lipid panel within a 15-minute workflow cycle.
