HemoCue® Hb 301 System
Sample material: Capillary, venous or arterial whole blood.
Measurement range: 0-25.6 g/dL (0-256 g/L or 0-15.9 mmol/L).
Results: In about 10 seconds.
Sample volume: 10 µL.
Weight: 500 g (1.10 pounds) with batteries installed.
Power: AC adapter or batteries.
Operating temperature: 10-40 °C (40-104 °F).
Interface: Printer and PC
Quality control: Built-in "selftest". The system can be verified using liquid controls.
Calibration: The system is factory calibrated against the ICSH reference method for hemoglobin and needs no further calibration.
Accuracy: Correlation of 0.99 when compared to the reference method (ICSH method).
Storage for the HemoCue® Hb 301 Analyzer: The analyzer can be stored at temperature 0-50 °C (32-122 °F).
Storage for the HemoCue® Hb 301 Microcuvette: The microcuvettes are to be stored at 10-40 °C (50-104 °F).
Short-term storage (6 weeks) -18-50 °C (0.4 - 122 °F).
Once the vial is opened the microcuvettes are stable for three months. Always keep the vial closed.
Method: van Kempen E J and Zijlstra W G. Spectrophotometry of hemoglobin and hemoglobin derivativies. Advances in Clinical Chemistry, vol 23, 199-257 (1983).
Principle: Hemoglobin concentration is determined by measuring the absorbance of whole blood at an Hb/HbO2 isobestic point. This method correlates well with the reference method for hemoglobin determination (the ICSH method). The analyzer uses a double wavelength measuring method, 506 nm and 880 nm, for compensation of turbidity.
