Leading clinical laboratory equipment dealers offer a wide range of these devices equipped with advanced features and testing capabilities. The DCA Vantage from Siemens Healthcare Diagnostics is user-friendly point-of-care analyzer that simplifies diabetes testing and delivers accurate and clinically relevant results, thereby improving therapeutic decision making and patient compliance. This FDA-approved device is an ideal option to monitor glycemic control and detect early kidney disease in various settings such as physicians’ offices and remote, point-of-care coordinated sites in hospitals, and multisite practices. 

Efficient Patient Management

The DCA Vantage analyzer is used by three out of four physicians who perform HbA1c testing in their office. It improves workflow by helping physicians manage diabetic patients more effectively. It comes with advanced features and provides fast and reliable test results allow healthcare providers to decide on the effectiveness of a treatment plan, and make therapeutic adjustments more confidently

This piece of lab equipment can test from a small (1 µL) whole blood sample in just 6 minutes. It also uses urine specimens for microalbumin, creatinine, and albumin/creatinine ratios using the appropriate cartridges in 7 minutes to report a quantitative protein status with automatic creatinine adjustment. An onboard GFR calculator equipped in this point-of-care analyzer indexes kidney function. In addition, printed patient records and electronic transmission to LIS electronic medical record allows for reduced transcription errors.
