The D-10 instrument provides comprehensive, fully automated hemoglobin testing in a compact footprint. Combining diabetes and β-thalassemia testing on a single platform, the system offers simple, efficient operation for clinics, physician offices or clinical laboratories. D-10 features an automatic system startup checklist and touch screen operation. One-step cartridge switching and automatic sample bar code reading increase workflow efficiency. Whole blood primary tube sampling eliminates off-line sample preparation. Separate programs for fast HbA1c or HbA2/F/A1c quantitation further simplify workflow. At only 15.8 inches wide by 21 inches deep by 18.8 inches high (40.2 cm x 53.4 cm x 47.6 cm), the D-10 requires a minimum amount of laboratory space.
