Quantitative determination of glycated haemoglobin in whole blood samples


Glycated haemoglobin (HbA1c) is formed in a non-enzymatic reaction by haemoglobin’s exposure to plasma glucose (1). The attachment of the glucose occurs continually over the entire lifespan of the red cell (average 100-120 days) and is directly proportional to the concentration of glucose in blood (2, 3). The HbA1c level therefore reflects the average concentration of glucose in the blood over the past 2-3 months.
It is the gold standard measure for establishing risk for complication in patients with type 1 or type 2 diabetes (4, 5) which is a growing global health disorder affecting about 400 millions people wordwide (6). The HbA1c concentration reported, either as a percentage of the total haemoglobin (NGSP) or in mmol/mol unit system (IFCC), provides a much better information of long term glycemic control than blood and urinary glucose direct measurements. 
The HbA1c-CHECK-1 test is an innovative rapid lateral flow test designed to quickly provide accurate HbA1c values in whole blood samples. When the diluted whole blood sample is applied into the sample well of the cassette, a signal is measured by the instrument during migration as well as on the test zone and is converted into an HbA1c percentage value. The estimated average glucose (eAG) value will be displayed at the same time. 
The control line appearance indicates that the test performed well.
