Features Performance Screens Reports

Intended Use :

The HbGold instrument and associated reagent kit is intended for the in vitro measurement of HbA1c, HbA2/HbF and the detection of hemoglobin variants in blood samples.
NOTE : In the USA, this instrument is available for research only.


Features :

  • Assays for HbA1c, HbA2, HbF and Hemoglobin Variants
  • One column and one set of reagents for all assays
  • Automatic identification and calculation of Hb fractions
  • 100 capacity autosampler with stat sample facility
  • Storage of up to 100 results and chromatograms on board
  • Multiple assay capability
  • Cooled autosampler for greater sample stability

Scientific Principle :

The HbGold uses cation exchange chromatography in conjunction with gradient elution to separate human haemoglobin subtypes and variants from haemolysed whole blood. The separated haemoglobin fractions are monitored by means of absorption and the chromatogram obtained is recorded and stored by the internal computer. A software program performs the analysis of the chromatogram and generates a results report to the printer.

The HbGold is able to run three different assays:
  -  HbA1c assay, 5.5 minutes per sample
  -  HbA2/HbF assay, 6 minutes per sample
  -  HbVariants assay, 13 minutes per sample

Data storage for 100 chromatograms, results and summary.
RS232 Unidirectional Serial Interface Port.
