The HemoCue® Plasma/Low Hb System

Unique Quality Control

Plasma-Low_glow2

Free hemoglobin in blood products is an essential indicator of the quality and integrity of these products.1,2 With the HemoCue® Plasma/Low Hb System, you can quantitatively determine even low levels of hemoglobin in plasma, serum and aqueous solutions. With this convenient solution, you can also measure stored or banked erythrocytes.

Confidently Assess Hemolysis In Stored Blood Products:

  • Replace subjective visual judgment
  • Precise factory calibration against the ICSH reference method
  • Unique microcuvette technology with excellent lot-to-lot reproducibility; bovine hemolysate liquid controls available

Get Easy Access to Lab-Quality Results:

  • Plasma, serum, aqueous solutions or stored erythrocyte suspensions
  • Provides quantitative results within one minute
  • Brief training with preventative maintenance, other than cleaning

Three Simple Steps:

HemoCue Plasma/Low step 1
HemoCue Plasma/Low step 2
HemoCue Plasma/Low step 3
