Topics in HbA1c Testing

Watch the short video series, Topics in HbA1c Testing, to learn about the importance of HbA1c result standardization and how it is achieved by the National Glycohemoglobin Standardization Program (NGSP) to enable accurate HbA1c results worldwide. Presented by Randie R. Little, PhD, NGSP network laboratory coordinator and director, Diabetes Diagnostic Laboratory University of Missouri.

Innovative MicroSlide design

Our VITROS® MicroSlide Technology uses a dry multi-layer, integrated testing environment to optimize each processing step for excellent accuracy and precision.

  • Excellent performance stability
  • Application of sample activates the dry slide reagent
  • Unique spread layer traps endogenous interferents (HIT, drugs, paraproteins, etc.)
  • Small sample sizes ideal for precious, hard-to-draw patients (2.7 -11.0 µL)


VITROS® Immunodiagnostic Products Insulin Reagent

The VITROS Insulin assay has excellent performance to help clinicians understand the cause of a patient’s hypoglycemia or differentiate between type I and type II diabetes. Measuring insulin levels can evaluate the production and resistance.

The VITROS Insulin assay antibody is highly specific for insulin detection, with no cross-reactivity to C-peptide or Proinsulin.* Importantly it has insignificant or no cross-reactivity to insulin analogs commonly used in diabetes treatment.

VITROS® Immunodiagnostics C-Peptide Assay

C-peptide testing provides a reliable assessment of beta-cell function and aids in differentiating Type I, Type II diabetes and MODY. Differentiating the diabetes type at clinical presentation is challenging and treatment decisions can improve with clear answers.

The VITROS C-Peptide assay uses an antibody highly specific for C-Peptide detection with no significant cross-reactivities to insulin, proinsulin, glucagon, calcitonin or somatostatin.

β-Hydroxybutyrate LiquiColor® Assay*

When seconds count in the ED, confidence is everything

Diabetic Ketoacidosis (DKA) can manifest as the first sign of diabetes for patients with type 1 and can occur in severe cases of hyperglycemia for patients with type 2 diabetes.

The ß-Hydroxybutyrate LiquiColor Assay* quantitatively measures ß-Hydroxybutyrate (BHB), the major ketone by product from the body metabolizing stored fat in the liver when glucose is not available. The buildup of ketones in the blood can be fatal if left unchecked.

The ß-Hydroxybutyrate LiquiColor Assay* is highly specific and is not susceptible to interferences for excellent performance on VITROS Systems. This lifesaving test is ready when you are.

*MicroTip Partnership Assay. May not be available in all countries.
