Why Bio-Rad HbA1c?

At Bio-Rad we're committed to helping you make a difference in your patients' lives. Our full-line of automated hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) testing systems leverage the highly specific and reproducible HPLC method to simplify the process of acquiring fast and accurate HbA1c results without common hemoglobin variant interferences from: HbAS, HbAC HbAD, and HbAE.

The American Diabetes Association (ADA) recommends using HbA1c to diagnose diabetes using an NGSP certified method and a cutoff of HbA1c ≥ 6.5%.1
