Stanbio Laboratory Receives FDA Approval for HemoPoint® H2 Data Management System
BOERNE, TX – June 23, 2009 – Stanbio Laboratory, L.P., a leader in medical testing and clinical diagnostic devices, is pleased to announce the FDA approval of its HemoPoint® H2 Hemoglobin Data Management System (DMS). The new, HemoPoint® H2 DMS features the timesaving convenience, quality control, and recordkeeping ease of data management technology.
The new HemoPoint® H2 DMS now utilizes barcode identification of operators, patients, and control intervals, as well as, connectivity to PCs via Bluetooth®. 4,000 patient and 500 QC results memory also contributes to an increased level of efficiency, while still including all the features that have made the original HemoPoint® H2 a trusted hemoglobin test system. The improved HemoPoint® H2 DMS still includes both a hemoglobin and calculated hematocrit result with one simple test; a proprietary “soft load” cuvette holder designed to minimize contamination of the optics lens; an easy-to-read backlit touch screen display – to name just a few of the instrument’s original features.
These improved features along with the new HemoPoint® H2 n•x•t microcuvette, make Stanbio Laboratory’s HemoPoint® H2 DMS hemoglobin and hematocrit test system an innovative and effective point-of-care device.
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.
