If RBCs are not lysed, HGB cannot be released and accurately measured.  This impacts HbA1c recovery and patient results, and may lead to improper disease management.

Streck’s A1c-Cellular® contains intact red blood cells and monitors the entire HbA1c testing process, including the critical step of lysing the red blood cells.

The lysing of RBCs in HbA1c testing is critical for accurate results and proper disease management.

Trust your entire HbA1c process to A1c-Cellular, the only control that includes the critical step of lysing the RBCs.

Manufactured with human red cells to replicate a patient sample.
The only commercially available control that monitors the lysing of the red blood cells.
Other controls with a compromised lysing procedure can cause two primary issues:
      Excessive "clogging" of the analyzer column 
component that leads
      to inaccurate results or inability to provide results.
      Potential misclassification of patients 
(normal, prediabetic, diabetic).
Liquid and ready for use, no reconstitution of the control is needed.

Superior Science



The A1c-Cellular control material is easy to use and gives consistent results. Ordering the material is simple and convenient.

"The A1c-Celluar control material is easy to use and gives consistent results." 

We have great results. The QC vials are easy to use and the expiration date is always good. There is always a large number of peer labs for comparison.

"Great results!"
