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.
The analyzer recognizes when a cuvette is not properly filled, resulting in an error message, not a false reading.

15-month shelf life (expiration date always falls on the last day of the month)
