HemoCue Hb 301 system accuracy vs. ICSH
Calibrated against the International Council for Standardization in Hematology (ICSH)
reference method, the HemoCue® Hb 301 System provides lab-quality results at the point-of-care.
Each point on the diagram represents an actual hemoglobin test result. The closer to the line, the more closely related the result is to the “gold standard” reference method.
