The disposable microcuvette is made of plastic and comprises a body having a cavity which takes about 10 µL.
The cuvette cavity contains reagents deposited on its inner walls and the blood sample is drawn into the cavity by capillary action and spontaneously mixed with the reagents.
Capillary, venous and arterial whole blood can be used.
The cuvette is then placed in a HemoCue Hb 201 Analyzer in which the transmittance is measured and the absorbance and hemoglobin level is calculated.
The absorbance is directly proportional to the hemoglobin concentration.
The reagents within the microcuvettes are moisture sensitive.
Replace the cap immediately after microcuvettes are removed from the container.
Chemistry method: Modified azidemethemoglobin.
Stability: Unopened in room temperature, 2 years from the date of manufacture.
