A1c-Cellular is the only HbA1c control on the market with intact red blood cells. A1c-Cellular tests the entire HbA1c procedure, including the lysing of the red blood cell – a step omitted with other controls. This important step ensures the entire system, instrument and reagents, is working properly and providing accurate patient results.

A1c-Cellular HbA1c control

A1c-Cellular is a whole blood control that tests the entire HbA1c procedure, including the lysing of the red blood cell, a step omitted by competitor controls. The ready-to-use liquid control resembles a patient sample and does not need to be reconstituted prior to use, reducing the potential for human error. A1c-Cellular is packaged in convenient vials with pierceable caps for autosampling by analyzer and is available in two clinically significant levels.
