Utilising our patented boronate affinity technology the Premier Hb9210™ offers you accurate & precise results, free from interference, in a rapid & highly scalable package. Delivering substantial workflow benefits, the platform is ideal for the most demanding laboratory & clinic environments.
The instrument consists of an integrated HPLC system, a compact sample handler and the workstation with our Affinity™ control software as pictured.
This allows the final result to be determined based on a simple peak area fraction of two species of Hb, making result interpretation extremely straightforward as there are only two peaks on the chromatogram:
With a worldwide increase in diabetes testing combined with increasing ethnic diversity, being completely free of interference from Hb variants gives you complete reassurance that the patient’s HbA1c result is being measured correctly.
With a sample analysis time of just 66 seconds and results needing minimal interpretation, the Premier Hb9210™ provides the fastest HbA1c analysis time currently available with a CV below 2%.
A capacity of 210 patient samples, which can be processed in batch or continuous loading mode, plus a STAT sample position gives flexibility & capacity to all medium & high throughput laboratories.
Racked tubes allow the operator to quickly add samples, prior to the instrument aspirating them directly from closed whole blood sample tubes using a self-cleaning syringe mechanism. This minimises blood contact & eliminates any manual pre-analytical preparation for the user.
The use of colour- and bar-coded reagents with excellent onboard stability, electronic level sensing and a continuous display of reagent status ensures sufficient reagents are onboard at all times. Less intervention as a user also allows for maximum instrument uptime.
Accurate & PreciseThe combination of the consistency of HPLC with the clearly defined separation of boronate affinity gives you repeatable, accurate results every time. In line with the ADA/EASD/IDF Working Group on HbA1c recent guidelines for reporting HbA1c, the Premier Hb9210™ is certified to report in the following units:
You can also rely on best in class precision, linearity & specificity:
The instrument is also an IFCC Reference Method and as a NGSP Certification Reference Method can even be used for the correlation of other devices for NGSP certification.
Software & ConnectivityPremier Hb9210™ Affinity™ software combines operator ease-of-use with the advanced data management facilities demanded by modern hospital IT policies.
Accessible via the integrated colour touch-screen, the familiar icon based interface enables instant access to instrument operation, run parameters, previous results & maintenance duties etc , letting you quickly setup patient runs.
Relevant reagent, QC & sample data is all entered using barcode readers, to eliminate transcription errors and speed data entry. The logging of this data with clear data presentation and excellent storage capacity ensures a full audit trail for maximum quality assurance and regulatory compliance.
ConclusionIn summary the Premier Hb9210™ offers you fast, reliable & safe HbA1c diagnosis in a compact, high-capacity platform. Rely on patented Boronate Affinity technology and the precise, accurate performance of HPLC to give you complete reassurance in your results.
