in2it™ A1C Test Procedure

1. Getting Started

  • Test cartridges must be warmed to room temperature
  • Consult the user manual for instructions on collecting control or venous samples
A. When the in2it is ready to run a test, the cartridge symbol will flash. Press the middle button (under the cartridge symbol) to start a test. D. With a sterile lancet, prick the patient's finger and gently squeeze to obtain a generous drop of blood.
B. The in2it door will open. It is ready to accept a cartridge. E. Holding the blood key by the round handle, touch the flat end to the blood drop. Blood will automatically flow into the key. Take care not to get blood on the outside of the blood key.
C. Place a cartridge in the workstand with the blue blood port facing up.    


2. Insert Blood Key into Cartridge

  • Proper insertion of blood key into the test cartridge is essential.
    See Quick Reference Guide.

A. Align
Properly align the blood key prior to pressing the key through the blue blood port. The winged flanges on the blood key must face the same direction as the notch in the blood port.

C. Push
Press firmly down on the blood key until it locks in position. You may feel two seperate and distinct cycles
 B. Pierce
Pierce the film covering the blue blood port. The blood key will drop slightly into the port.
 D. Twist
Twist the handle of the blood key until it snaps off.


3. Place Cartridge into Instrument

cartridge in the door with the white plate facing
inward and the blue blood port facing up.
C. When the test is completed, the result will be displayed. Record the result.
  D. Press the cartridge symbol button to open the door and remove the cartridge. After removing the cartridge, press the OK button to close the door prior to running the next test.

Improved Patient Care

Studies show that discussing A1C results with patients in realtime significantly improves glycemic control. A1 levels were reduced up to 1.44% A1C after 6 months and up to 1.65% HbA1C after 12 months in the immediate assay group compared to the control group.*

The in2it™ Analyzer offers fast, reliable A1C testing at the point of care. Calibrated to the Diabetes Control and Complications Trial (DCCT), in2it™ meets the standard for laboratory-accurate results. The system is CLIA-waived,* so existing staff can perform the test. Full automation simplifies training, eliminates manual steps, and allows walk-away operation. For greater convenience and patient comfort, it operates on small, fingerstick samples and is eligible for reimbursement.

Results are easy to manage with the analyzer’s full PC connectivity. Adhesive-backed printed reports improve workflow, eliminate transcription errors, and provide permanent back-up data. The ability to capture patient and operator identification allows full result traceability. in2it™ delivers precise results quickly and easily while patients wait, enabling same-visit consultations and better treatment compliance. Designed for laboratory precision with onsite convenience, in2it delivers accurate results in just minutes.

Bio-Rad’s in2it™ Analyzer requires two accessories for day-to-day operation: a System Check Cartridge and A1C Controls. The reusable System Check Cartridge verifies correct operation of all optical and electronic components, while the A1C Controls confirm that the analyzer and test cartridges are performing properly and that results are being reported correctly.
