The Afinion™ 2 Analyzer enables fast and easy quantitative determinations of hemoglobin A1c
(HbA1c) and albumin-creatinine ratio (ACR). With its compact size and short test times, the
Afinion™ 2 System is ideal for managing patients with diabetes.
FACTORY CALIBRATED

GUIDED TEST PROCEDURE

Each Afinion 2 Analyzer is
carefully calibrated during
manufacturing and a self-check
is automatically performed when
the instrument is turned on.
No calibration check devices or
cumbersome and costly operator
calibration is required.

The analyzer's simple, 3-step test
procedure includes a touch display
with icons and short messages that
guide the operator.

NO MAINTENANCE
The analyzer has no parts
requiring periodic replacement.

Recent studies comparing the Afinion™ HbA1c assay to routine and reference laboratory methods have
consistently shown a bias close to zero and a coefficient of variation (CV) below 2% (NGSP units).1-5
Test results can be printed or transferred to electronic medical records.
