biosurfit, the in vitro point-of-care (PoC) diagnostics company, announces that its spinit® HbA1c point-of-care test has successfully achieved both IFCC (International Federation of Clinical Chemistry and Laboratory Medicine) certification and NGSP (National Glycohemoglobin Standardization Program) certification.
The IFCC maintains the JCTLM (Joint Committee for Traceability in Laboratory Medicine) endorsed reference measurement procedure for HbA1c, accepted worldwide as the analytical control for traceability of HbA1c measurement.
The NGSP certification is awarded to systems that yield results sufficiently accurate and precise to be comparable to those reported in the Diabetes Control and Complications Trial (DCCT).
The recent awarding of both IFCC and NGSP certifications, clearly demonstrate that the spinit® HbA1c test meets all the extremely demanding requirements set by two independent certifying bodies.
Glycated hemoglobin (HbA1c) testing is globally recognised as the gold standard in monitoring of diabetic patients, enabling more complete control of their disease management. The spinit® HbA1c test offers precise and accurate results in less than 6 minutes from just 5μL of blood, using a simple system capable of performing further blood tests.
João Garcia da Fonseca, CEO of biosurfit, commented: "It is with immense pride and honour that biosurfit receives these certifications. We believe this is the recognition of our hard and intense work along the years to make spinit® a new reference in the way of performing blood analysis.”
