The HemoCue® Albumin 201 System

Detect Microalbuminuria

Fast, portable, and easy to use, the HemoCue® Albumin 201 system is ideal for use during diabetes and hypertension treatment, as well as for detecting preeclampsia during pregnancy checkups.

The HemoCue® Albumin 201 System offers lab-quality results to identify albuminuria, a powerful predictor for the future development of diabetic nephropathy, retinopathy and cardiovascular complications and diabetes.

HemoCue’s microcuvette technology allows for results at the point of care, so you can make rapid treatment decisions, rather than wait for lab results that can take longer.

HemoCue Albumin 201 System
  • Screen, diagnose and monitor for microalbuminuria at the point of care
  • Offers rapid results that may be used for adjusting patient medications during an office visit
  • Provides objective quantitative analysis that allows for billable positive and negative results
