EKF diabetes care strives to improve patient access to diabetes care diagnostics through the provision of affordable, easy-to-use technology, reducing the cost of long-term healthcare of the diabetic and pre-diabetic population.
Our diagnostic tests for glycated hemoglobin (HbA1c) and glucose deliver fast and reliable results that provide both practitioner and patient with the information they need to make clinical or lifestyle decisions in minutes
The Biosen C-Line series of glucose analysers are a familiar brand name in laboratories and diabetes clinics around the world. Biosen uses chip sensor technology to provide fast and highly accurate results at a low cost for glucose, and, if required, lactate.
The EKF diabetes care portfolio also includes clinical chemistry used in diabetes care such as Beta-Hydroxybutyrate LiquiColor® reagent, and Glycated Serum Protein (GSP) Liquicolor® reagents. GSP provides a two to three week indicator of average blood glucose.
We have written a series of guides to help medical professionals understand more about point-of-care testing for anemia, diabetes, ketosis and lactate measurement.
Find out more about the different methods for testing, the symptoms, the associated conditions and understand how POCT can help deliver accurate results in minutes.
Diabetes Mellitus is a lifelong metabolic condition in which the body becomes resistant to the effect of insulin or does not produce enough of this hormone to process glucose.
There are multiple options for the diagnosis of diabetes, most of which involve measuring the level of glycemic control a person exhibits i.e. how much glucose is present in their blood.

The detection of ketosis is important in several clinical conditions. The most important is the detection of potentially fatal ketoacidosis in diabetics.
These fats are metabolized in the liver and this metabolism produces chemical byproducts called ketones. The buildup of ketones can prove fatal a condition known as acidosis.
