The Afinion Point-of-Care Analyzer now has a new dedicated website. For further information about the Analyzer visit www.afinion.net, our website specially dedicated to Afinion, and which includes a demonstration video.
The Analyzer and test cartridges have been precision engineered by external organisations according to Axis-Shield designs and specifications, with each test cartridge containing an integrated sample collection device and all necessary reagents for one single analysis.
Currently the following tests are available: HbA1c for monitoring of diabetic control and increasingly disease diagnosis, Albumin/Creatinine Ratio (ACR) urine test for assessing degree of diabetic renal complications and C-Reactive Protein (CRP) test for differentiation between bacterial and viral infections and whether antibiotic treatment is merited. The latest addition to the test panel is a lipid panel for cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk assessment.
The Afinion Analyzer is a concept comprising an instrument specially designed to measure various chemistries, and consequently a very wide range of potential tests. The reagent cartridge and the instrument are designed as closed units.
A unique fail-safe system supervises and logs every step during processing and measurement. This ensures that a result will never be displayed if an error occurs during sample handling or measurement.
