SKUP evaluation of cobas b 101 for HbA1c measurements

SKUP is a Scandinavian group that performs independent evaluations of the analytical quality and user-friendliness of laboratory equipment and rapid tests used for point of care testing (POCT).

The report from the SKUP evaluation of cobas b 101 has now been published on our web site. It is a POCT system for measurements of HbA1c, CRP (SKUP/2019/116) and a lipid panel (SKUP/2020/118). This evaluation was performed at two primary health care centres to determine the analytical quality and user-friendliness in the hands of the intended users under real-life conditions. It is a follow up evaluation of SKUP/2020/117. The quality goal for repeatability (CV%) was fulfilled. The quality goals for accuracy and user-friendliness were not fulfilled.
