A1c-Cellular® Linearity

A1c-Cellular Linearity is a ready-to-use linearity product featuring intact red blood cells. A1c-Cellular Linearity tests the entire HbA1c procedure, including the lysing of the red blood cell. It is assayed on the top HbA1c chemistry analyzers and provides instrument-specific target values and expected ranges for immediate results.

A1c-Cellular Linearity

A1c-Cellular Linearity is a 5-level assayed linearity material used to assess instrument accuracy and verify the reportable range of the Hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) parameter. It is the only commercially available linearity/calibration verification material containing intact red blood cells. A1c-Cellular Linearity tests the entire HbA1c procedure, including the lysing of the red blood cell – a step omitted by competitive products. This important step ensures that the entire system, instrument and reagents, is working properly and providing accurate patient results. The ready-to-use liquid control mimics a patient sample and does not need to be reconstituted prior to use, reducing the potential for human error. A1c-Cellular Linearity is packaged in convenient cap-pierceable vials for autosampling by analyzer and the vials include barcodes for instruments capable of barcode scanning.
