The DCA 2000 clinical analyser for the measurement of haemoglobin A1c was evaluated for analytical quality. The analyser, which utilises inhibition of latex agglutination immunoassay, demonstrated good within-batch (1.9-3.1% CV) and between-batch (2.2% CV) imprecision, and was not affected by haemoglobin concentration. The analyser was linear throughout the analytical range, and was found to correlate well with agar electroendosmosis (r = 0.93), affinity chromatography (r = 0.97), HPLC (r = 0.90) and EIA (r = 0.98). The analyser was found to give reliable analytical results, and with its ease of use, will provide the diabetologist with HbA1c results in the clinic; although an analysis time of 9 min will limit sample throughput.
