High accuracy hematocrit measurement for blood donor screening and sports medicine
EKF Diagnostics UltraCrit Plus™ is a hematocrit analyzer delivering highly accurate measurements for blood donor screening and sports medicine.
In addition to providing a hematocrit measurement the UltraCrit Plus also provides a hemoglobin calculation.
UltraCrit Plus is a unique technology, developed in the USA. It is the first and only hematocrit/hemoglobin device to use ultrasound methodology.
Using the highly accurate ultrasound method means blood banks can be confident that they will minimize the number of false deferrals and false accepts.
UltraCrit Plus™ cuvettes use a 40 μl blood sample which is then inserted into the analyzer. Results are displayed within 30 seconds.
UltraCrit Plus has a CE mark for sale in European markets.

Frequently asked questions
What is meant by 'reduced user subjectivity'?
The analyzer recognizes when a cuvette is not properly filled, resulting in an error message, not a false reading.
What are the cuvette specifications?
Cuvette Specifications are as follows:
Contain no chemicals
15-month shelf life (expiration date always falls on the last day of the month)
Opening the container does not change the expiration date
Validation of cuvettes not required
Operating temperature: 10 to 40°C (50 to 104°F)
Storage temperature: 0 to 30°C (32 to 86°F)
Not affected by humidity
Cuvette does not need to be filled in one continuous motion
What controls does the UltraCrit use?
An internal diagnostic test automatically runs each time UltraCrit is turned on. If liquid controls are required, UltraChek controls are non-biohazardous, non toxic, and require no refrigeration. The easy to use single-use vials are available in low, normal and high levels
