HemCheck is a device produced by HemCheck Sweden AB, capable of detecting haemolysis from whole blood. The device is particularly indicated for patients undergoing ECMO treatment, or cardiac surgery, as it enables the monitoring of free haemoglobin trends in real time.
The device quantifies free haemoglobin, at the time of collection, in less than 10 seconds. The device features a unique filtration technology capable of separating plasma from whole blood. The test can be performed using either syringes or vacuum tubes. Its accuracy is comparable to laboratory chemical analysers.
