spinit® HbA1c

The spinit® HbA1c disposable disc is used with the spinit® instrument as a quantitative assay for the measurement of HbA1c - glycosylated haemoglobin in whole blood (venous and capillary).

About HbA1c

The concentration of glycated haemoglobin (HbA1c) is a substitute measure for the average blood glucose level over the previous 120 days (usual lifespan of an erythrocyte) as well as a strong marker of complications associated with diabetes. Thus, it is used as a clinical tool for the monitoring of glycaemic control in diabetes patients.
Diabetes Mellitus (DM) is a chronic, metabolic disease characterised by high levels of blood glucose, which over time may lead to serious complications like cardiovascular disease, renal failure or retinopathy. There are two types of DM: type 1 and type 2.

Type 2 diabetes is the most common type, which occurs when the body becomes resistant to insulin or does not produce enough insulin. Over the last decades, the prevalence of type 2 diabetes has risen dramatically in all countries around the world.

clinical utility

The measurement of HbA1c is used as a diagnostic tool to identify patients who may be at risk for developing diabetes mellitus and is recommended for monitoring long-term blood glucose control in individuals with diabetes mellitus. HbA1c concentration levels correlate well with the risk of long-term macro and microvascular diabetes complications. 

The development of such complications can be retarded by defining specific treatment targets and decision limits to achieve adequate metabolic control. The use of point of care testing for HbA1c measurement enables rapid provision of information regarding patient glycaemic history, which allows for timely decisions on therapeutic regimen, enhancing the likelihood of patient compliance to the treatment. 

Clinical Specialities

Primary Care
Specialised Consultative Care

Primary Care

Primary health care is the first point of contact for health care for most people. It is mainly provided by GPs (general practitioners) but community pharmacists, opticians and dentists are also primary healthcare providers. Typically, this provider acts as the first contact and principal point of continuing care for patients within a healthcare system, and coordinates another specialist care that the patient may need.

Since these professionals are met with a wide range of patients suffering from a variety of diseases, knowing the key medical parameters in a fast and accurate manner can help to provide the best medical treatment the patient requires, while helping diminish the need for unnecessary drugs, such as antibiotics in viral infections. Also, having the ability to perform these tests in a fast and timely manner, allows instant monitoring and adjustment of treatment.

With spinit® products you can find quickly and accurately your patient’s key medical status indicators (CRP, blood panel, HbA1c), so you can provide the best treatment to your patient needs.

Specialised Consultative Care

Specialised consultative health care is usually for inpatients or patients referred from a primary or secondary health professional, in a facility that has personnel and facilities for advanced medical investigation and treatment. Such speciality care encompasses Diabetology, Endocrinology, Paediatrics, among others.

The healthcare professionals are met with very specific forms of diseases, specific types of patients or patients who require continuous monitoring of a pre-existing disease, such as diabetes.

With our spinit® products you can rapidly and simply know your patients HbA1c (spinit® HbA1c), at consultation so you don’t have to wait several days for test results to start or change therapy. Also, with spinit® CRP you can know in under 4 minutes the c-reactive protein value of your patients and, with the spinit® BC test, you can rapidly know a 5-part differential (lymphocytes, neutrophils, monocytes, eosinophils and basophils) and haematocrit, so for patients who require special attention (e.g. Infants) or patients with mobility difficulties, you can have a fast a reliable means to know the best treatment to provide.
