International markets: You need competent partners if you want to make it

Having an amazing product isn’t always enough to make it in the international marketplace. Market know-how is required as well as, for instance, the right certification mark so that the product meets the respective standards of a country. CSA International has specialized in developing such standards and in making this data available as well as supplying test and certification services.International markets: You need competent partners if you want to make it - Read more

EKF Diagnostics: Lab-accurate POC HbA1c measurement

Glycated haemoglobin (HbA1c) has gathered momentum as the preferred method for monitoring diabetes within the medical community over the last decade. The primary advantages of HbA1c are that diabetic patients are not required to fast before taking a test, unlike an oral glucose tolerance, and the procedure need only be carried out four times a year.EKF Diagnostics: Lab-accurate POC HbA1c measurement - Read more
