The VARIANT™ II TURBO Hemoglobin Testing System combines Bio-Rad’s HPLC precision and variant detection with fast throughput. VARIANT technology provides a comprehensive solution for HbA1C testing. Built for exceptional performance, the state-of-the-art, fully automated TURBO system delivers quality results at high test volumes — providing results in 97 seconds per sample.

The VARIANT™ II TURBO offers complete automation, with positive sample tracking and powerful data management. Save time and minimize errors with whole blood primary tube sampling — no costly manual preparation required. Streamline workflow through continuous or batch sampling. Results and chromatograms are captured and archived by Bio-Rad’s Clinical Data Management™ (CDM) software. CDM provides remote support and interfaces with laboratory information systems (LIS) for optimal data management. Advanced diagnostics, user alerts, and prompts reduce costs and training time, while the QC Module tracks quality control.
