With an accuracy of ± 2 g/dL 95% of the time (2 SD) and with a threshold for treatment for anemia at 9.5 to 11 g/dL, SpHb could be used to safety screen between 73 and 95% of the population to rule out anemia (SpHb values of ≥11.5–13 g/dL) and an additional 0.5% of the population to rule in anemia (SpHb values of 7.5
The Mission® Hb Hemoglobin Testing System is intended for the quantitative determination of hemoglobin (Hb) and calculated hematocrit (Hct) in capillary and venous human whole blood.
A hemoglobinometer is a medical measuring device of hemoglobin blood concentration. It can operate by spectrophotometric measurement of hemoglobin concentration. Portable hemoglobinometers provide easy and convenient measurement of hematological variables, especially in areas where no clinic laboratories are available.
