How long do you have to introduce the filled cuvette into the HemoCue analyzer?

15. The filled (test) microcuvette should be analyzed within 10 minutes after being filled. Filled (test) microcuvettes are to be kept in the horizontal position. Place the filled (test)microcuvettes into the cuvette holder and gently slide the holder into measuring position.

What is the sample volume for a HemoCue HB 201 Microcuvette?

5 µL
Microcuvette HemoCue® Glucose 201 Diabetes Management Blood Glucose For HemoCue® Glucose 201 Blood Glucose Analyzer 100 Tests 5 µL Sample Volume.

How often do you need to recalibrate your HemoCue Hb 201+ Analyzer?

The accuracy of the Hb 201+ System is ±1.5% when compared to the international reference method for hemoglobin (the ICSH method). Many studies also show excellent correlation with different laboratory systems. There is no need to recalibrate the instrument when new batches of cuvettes are put into use.

What is the normal range for HB?

The normal range for hemoglobin is: For men, 13.5 to 17.5 grams per deciliter. For women, 12.0 to 15.5 grams per deciliter.

What reference method is the HemoCue HB 201 system calibrated against?

international reference method for haemoglobin determination
The HemoCue Hb 201+ instrument is calibrated against the international reference method for haemoglobin determination, ICSH3. Accurately testing known levels of haemoglobin ensures that the system and your technique used in testing give accurate results on patient tests.

How should the HemoCue HB 201 Microcuvettes be stored?

Storage and handling of the HemoCue Hb 201 Microcuvettes The microcuvettes are to be stored at a temperature of 15–30 °C (59–86 °F) and in a dry place. Do not refrigerate. Use the microcuvettes prior to the expiration date that is printed on each package.

How do you use HemoCue 201+?

Push the HemoCue Cleaner swab into the opening of the cuvette holder. Pull out and push in 5 –10 times. If the swab is stained, repeat with a new swab. Stop when the swab comes out clean.

What is the measuring range for the HemoCue HB 201 system?

0 – 256 g/L
The instrument has a measuring range of 0 – 256 g/L. Results above 256 g/L are displayed as ‘HHH’.

What is a HemoCue analyzer used for?

HemoCue point-of-care systems are available to test blood glucose, HbA1c, urine albumin, Hb and white blood cells with five part differential counts. The systems give immediate results with laboratory accuracy.

What is the normal range of hemoglobin in human body?

Normal results for adults vary, but in general are: Male: 13.8 to 17.2 grams per deciliter (g/dL) or 138 to 172 grams per liter (g/L) Female: 12.1 to 15.1 g/dL or 121 to 151 g/L.
