Not all HbA1c Assays are Equal

HbA1c Systems

Choose Bio-Rad HPLC

A variant form of hemoglobin in your blood can give you false HbA1c test results. The use of an HbA1c assay that reveals suspected hemoglobin variants (otherwise invisible on other methods) can help you identify patients with clinically silent hemoglobinopathies, allowing you to alert physicians of potential interference on HbA1c test results and/or suggest other methods to manage patients with hemoglobinopathies. More doctors are turning to HPLC technology because separation of hemoglobins is critical for minimizing HbA1c interferences.
