BACKGROUND HbA1c is a key biomarker for the monitoring of glycemic balance in diabetic patients. It may be measured by various methods, including HPLC and immunoassays. Here we report the results of the first evaluation of Capillarys 2 Flex Piercing®, a new analyzer using capillary electrophoresis for the separation and the quantification of HbA1c. (More)
AIM Assaying HbA1c in patients with haemoglobin variants has long been a technical challenge, despite methodological advances that have progressively limited the problem. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the impact of the most frequent haemoglobin variants on three routine separation methods compared with the IFCC reference method. PATIENTS Blood(More)
The evaluation of glycated hemoglobin (HbA(1c)) is used in daily practice for monitoring the diabetes mellitus. HbA(1c) may be assayed by different methods, among which high-pressure liquid chromatography (HPLC). We have evaluated a new kit 2.0 available on HPLC Variant II(®) Turbo analyzer (Bio-Rad), which is characterized by an elution buffer containing(More)
BACKGROUND Glycated hemoglobin (HbA1c) is widely used for the monitoring of glycemic balance in diabetic patients and has also been proposed as a tool for the diagnostic of diabetes mellitus. Accordingly, HbA1c quantification must be performed using robust, reliable and efficient methods. Here are reported the results of the evaluation of a new high(More)
HbA(1c) assay by high-pressure liquid chromatography (HPLC) remains submitted to various analytical interferences. We have evaluated the behaviour of the analyzers G8 (Tosoh Bioscience) and Variant II (BioRad) towards the most common interferences (i.e. labile fraction of HbA(1c), carbamylated hemoglobin, bilirubin, triglycerides, hemoglobin variants). This(More)
comsis, which stands for communication systems interactive software, is a computer-aided-design tool based on a time approach. It allows the design, analysis, and performance optimization of optical transmission systems by use of various optical devices. comsis allows scalar or vectorial simulations, depending on whether the polarization is taken into(More)
D-10(®) (Bio-Rad) analyzer using cationic exchange high performance chromatography (HPLC) allows the detection of the main hemoglobin variants. This observation shows the presence of a peak on chromatogram with a low intensity and no quantifiable which can lead to different diagnosis. Inter-sample contaminations can be confused with the presence of an(More)
INTRODUCTION Haemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) is a key analyte for the monitoring of glycemic balance in diabetic patients and is used for diabetes diagnosis in many countries. The potential interference of carbamylated haemoglobin (cHb) and labile glycated haemoglobin (LA1c) on HbA1c assays must remain a matter of vigilance. Such a situation has occurred in our(More)
The methods of HbA1c assay using ion exchange high pressure liquid chromatography (HPLC) allow the detection of the most common hemoglobin variants. This observation highlights the different behaviour of two HPLC analyzers in the presence of Tatras hemoglobin. By one of the analyzer (Variant II, Bio-Rad) this variant is detected, but not by the other (G8,(More)
