Diabetes Assays

Whether it’s routine testing for glucose, HbA1c, urinary albumin, or esoteric tests for insulin, C-peptide or Cystatin C, Siemens’ extensive menu provides a full complement of tests across platforms.

Two common comorbidities of diabetes are hyperlipidemia and cardiovascular disease. Siemens offers a comprehensive portfolio of lipid testing solutions. The American Diabetes Association (ADA) recommends that all adult patients with diabetes have their lipid profile determined yearly. This profile includes total cholesterol, HDL cholesterol, triglycerides, and calculated LDL cholesterol. If the triglyceride level is high a direct LDL measurement should be strongly considered. If values are at low-risk levels (LDL <100 mg/dl, triglycerides <150 mg/dl, and HDL >50 mg/dl), assessment may be repeated every 2 years.1

Make efficient use of your staff by consolidating diabetes-related testing with your other immunoassays on a single automated system.
