About the parameter
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 546nm.
Range: 0 – 30 g/dl
Lower detection limit: 0.5 g/dl
This test takes only 1 minute.

Please note: depending on the time of the market launch of an assay, the respective assay evaluation was carried out using either a Eurolyser smart instrument or a Eurolyser CUBE instrument.
Since the measurement method is the same in both instruments (their photometric units are identical in construction), as was proved in this comparison study, all testkit evaluations provided on this website are valid for either instrument!
