Simple, accurate and reliable hemoglobin and hematocrit test

EKF Diagnostics’  Hemo Control is a point-of-care hemoglobin analyzer designed to provide quantitative, lab quality hemoglobin results from 25 seconds.

Hemo Control uses the most established photometric azide methemoglobin method ensuring reliable results with a high precision (CV <2%).

Hemo Control is used in blood banks, hospitals and doctors’ offices for routine screening for anemia. And, due to its backlit screen, a soft-load cuvette holder and integrated rechargeable battery, it is the perfect analyzer for stationary use and mobile settings.

In addition to providing hemoglobin measurement Hemo Control also calculates hematocrit.

The Hemo Control analyzer features a bi-directional interface using a public standard protocol that allows direct integration with third party software. 

Advanced data management functions are available with the Hemo Control Manager version of the device and  the basic Hemo Control device can be upgraded with data management functions at a later point of time (a unique market feature).

The ‘Add Pack’ Data management is an ideal future option for customers who plan for an implementation into a hospital or lab information system but are not yet in a position to do so for technological or budgetary reasons.

EKF's Hemo Connect and Hemo Connect Light software remain available for customers who wish to use data management and data export functions, independent from LIS integration.

Easy measurements in 3 steps

1.  Collect blood sample. 
2.  Put microcuvette into analyzer. 
3.  Result appears in 25-60 sec.
