Glucose in the blood can bind with a protein in red blood cells called haemoglobin by a process known as glycosylation to form HbA1C (Glycosylated haemoglobin). Measurement of HbA1c provides a means of estimating long-term glucose status (the base-line for management) and can be used to diagnose diabetes.
Clover A1c machine is a reliable Point of Care equipment that measures both HbA1c in 5 minutes and Blood Glucose levels in 10secs simultaneously. It has FDA approval (USA) and CE certificate (EU). It is fully automatic, uses 4 µl blood sample, boronate affinity and spectrophotometry.
