Beckman Coulter B00389 Olympus HbA1c Reagent Kit (beckman coulter hba1c kits): Intended Use

The Beckman Coulter B00389 Olympus HbA1c Reagent kit for Hemoglobin A1c Test , sometimes referred as Hemoglobin-A1c reagent, when used in conjunction with Beckman Coulter Systems, HbA 1c Calibrators, and SYNCHRON and AU Hemolyzing Reagent, is intended for the quantitative determination of hemoglobin-A1c concentration in human whole blood.

The absolute HbA1c and Total Hemoglobin (THb) values generated as part of the beckman coulter hba1c assay are intended for use in the calculation of the HbA1c/Total Hemoglobin ratio, and must not be used individually for diagnostic purposes.

Beckman Coulter B00389 Olympus HbA1c Reagent Kit (Hemoglobin A1c Test): What is a hemoglobin A1C test?

A hemoglobin A1C test is a blood test that shows what your average blood sugar (glucose) level was over the past two to three months.

Glucose is a type of sugar in your blood that comes from the foods you eat. Your cells use glucose for energy. A hormone called insulin helps glucose get into your cells. If you have diabetes your body doesn’t make enough insulin, or your cells don’t use it well. As a result, glucose can’t get into your cells, so your blood sugar levels increase.

Glucose in your blood sticks to hemoglobin, a protein in your red blood cells. As your blood glucose levels increase, more of your hemoglobin will be coated with glucose. An A1C test measures the percentage of your red blood cells that have glucose-coated hemoglobin.

Hemoglobin A1c Test can show your average glucose level for the past three months because:

  • Glucose sticks to hemoglobin for as long as the red blood cells are alive.
  • Red blood cells live about three months.

High hemoglobin A1C test levels are a sign of high blood glucose from diabetes. Diabetes can cause serious health problems, including heart diseasekidney disease, and nerve damage. But with treatment and lifestyle changes, you can control your blood glucose levels.

Other names: A1C, Hemoglobin A1c reagent, glycohemoglobin, glycated hemoglobin, glycosylated hemoglobin

Hemoglobin A1c Test may be used to screen for or diagnose:

  • Type 2 diabetes. With type 2 diabetes your blood glucose gets too high because your body doesn’t make enough insulin to move blood sugar from your bloodstream into your cells, or because your cells stop responding to insulin.
  • Prediabetes. Prediabetes means that your blood glucose levels are higher than normal, but not high enough to diagnosed as diabetes. Lifestyle changes, such as healthy eating and exercise, may help delay or prevent prediabetes from becoming type 2 diabetes.

If you have diabetes or prediabetes, Hemoglobin A1c Test test can help monitor your condition and check how well you’ve been able to control your blood sugar levels.
