THE DIGITAL HIGH QUALITY HEMOGLOBINOMETER
WITH AUTO CALIBRATION
recommended by The Russian Health Ministry for equipping of medical institutions of any level
(instruction #380, December 25, 1997)
A leader of sales on Russian market,
MiniHEM is being produced by Russian manufacturer Technomedica for 20 years. Besides, MiniHEM
is exported to South African Republic, Kazakhstan, Ukraine, Great Britain, Sweden.
MiniHEM is a portable and at the same high performance device
with full automated calibration process. No adjustment
or calibration is needed for device maintenance. There
is no need neither in calibrating solutions nor in qualified
Measurement range is from 0 to 360 g/litre, photometrical
accuracy is 1%.
20 microlitres (or 10 microlitres) of capillary (or venous) blood is required
for the measurement. Photometry probe can be prepared
using one of two different transforming solutions:
- for MiniHEM 540 hemoglobin-cyanide technique
is used. Probe preparation takes ~20 minutes, probe volume
not less 1 ml (breeding 1: 250).
- for MiniHEM 523 0,04% ammonia solution as a transfor-ming
solution is used. Probe preparation takes 1 sec, probe volume
not less 1 ml (breeding 1: 100).
Result is displayed on LCD in gram/litres. Power supply
is provided by 3 AA size batteries, the lifetime of a single
battery set exceeds 1,000,000 measuring cycles. Besides
it, an external AC/DC adapter can be connected through a
built-in socket. No turning on/off is needed because MiniHEM
is continuously in standby power-saving mode. Measuring
cycle takes no more than 1 sec. The cycle starts automatically
after placing a cuvettte with a probe into the measuring
cell. Measures can be repeated in each of 2 seconds. Use
of glass or plastic 10 mm cuvettes and glass tube with 12
mm round is also available.
Dimensions are 178x128x43 mm, weight is less than 300 g.
Note: Full analog MiniHEM 523 instrument has been issued by DHT Haemoglobinometer brand a few years ago.
Currently available only MiniHEM 523.
