Siemens expands anaemia test menu using chemiluminescence technology

Siemens Healthcare Diagnostics : 17 January, 2008  (New Product)
Siemens Healthcare Diagnostics has launched the LOCI Folate, LOCI B12, and LOCI Ferritin tests for use on the Dimension Vista 1500 Intelligent Lab System, an ultra-integrated chemistry analyser.
Physicians use the tests to diagnose and monitor anaemia in patients. The new tests further expand Siemens' LOCI immunoassay test menu for the Dimension Vista System.

'Anaemia is estimated to affect up to 30 percent of the world's population,' said Jim Reid-Anderson, president, and CEO, Siemens Healthcare Diagnostics. 'Early diagnosis and effective treatment of anaemia can make a strong contribution to improving patient outcomes and enhancing the quality of life. With the addition of B12, Folate, and Ferritin to the Dimension Vista Intelligent Lab System test menu, we can further support physicians in advancing the successful treatment of the most common forms of anaemia.'

Through the use of the LOCI Advanced Chemiluminescence Technology, Siemens Healthcare Diagnostics provides clinical laboratories greater levels of testing sensitivity for immunoassay testing and a broad test menu capability on the Dimension Vista Intelligent Lab system.

The ultra-integrated chemistry analyser now offers one of the most comprehensive menus for the detection and differentiation of anemia and iron metabolism, including Folate, B12, and Ferritin by LOCI technology; Iron and Total Iron Binding Capacity by photometric methodology; and Haptoglobin, Soluble Transferrin Receptor, and Transferrin testing by nephelometric methodology.

The Dimension Vista Intelligent Lab system menu offers panels for anaemia, cardiac disease, thyroid disorders, therapeutic drug monitoring, protein testing, drugs-of-abuse testing, and routine and specialty chemistry testing.
