May 26, 2009
BOERNE, TX – Stanbio Laboratory, L.P., a leader in medical testing and clinical diagnostic devices, is pleased to announce the availability of its newly improved hemoglobin system. The upgraded, CLIA-Waived, HemoPoint® H2 Test System offers a 4,000 test result memory, faster time to result, and battery backlighting feature.

The new HemoPoint® H2 now recalls 4,000 patient results, an improvement from the previous 100 test result memory, ensuring accurate patient data tracking. A hemoglobin and calculated hematocrit result can now be read in as little as 10 seconds. The time to result is measurably faster than the previous model, allowing for accurate testing in a time critical setting. The improved HemoPoint® H2 also has a new battery backlight feature, improving readability throughout the self prompting test procedure, including the final result screen.

These improved features along with the new HemoPoint® H2 n•x•t microcuvette, make Stanbio Laboratory's HemoPoint® H2 hemoglobin and hematocrit test system a true upgrade from the original H2.

The HemoPoint® H2 provides both a hemoglobin and hematocrit result, using a single drop of whole blood, with one simple test. Hemoglobin testing is routinely performed in blood banks, public health clinics, operating theaters, intensive care units and trauma centers. Point-of-care hemoglobin testing is also run by OB/GYNs, as well as, general and pediatric physicians.
