Original Source: The effect of hematocrit on the results of measurements using glucose meters based on different techniques.

Abstract Background: The aim of the study was to evaluate the effect of hematocrit (HCT) on glucose meter assays based on different measurement techniques. Methods: This paper studied glucose meters utilizing the glucose dehydrogenase reaction and four measurement techniques: colorimetry (HemoCue), reflectometry (Accu-Chek Active), amperometry (Optium Xido) and coulometry (Optium Omega). The EDTA venous blood samples HCT were modified by adding or removing defined aliquots of plasma. Glucose concentrati...
