anemia test kit / hemoglobin / photometric
In routine medical diagnostics a haemoglobin (HGB) test can be used for the following purposes:
To diagnose and monitor the course of therapy for anemia or polyglobulia
To monitor risk groups for iron deficiency (pregnant women, infants, blood donors, hemodialysis patients, diabetics, athletes, …)
As part of point-of-care testing when acute bleedings or hemorrhages are suspected
For detecting parasitic diseases as well as quantifying blood loss
The reagent used binds haemoglobin and its variants to form a coloured complex, which is detected photometrically at 546 nm.
