Siemens DCA Vantage Analyser

The DCA Vantage Analyzer is a point-of-care system that helps you monitor glycemic control and detect early kidney disease.

  • CLIA-waived HbA1c test that is IFCC and NGSP-certified
  • 1µl finger stick without fasting – HbA1c results in 6 minutes
  • Random urine sample provides A:C ratio in 7 minutes
  • Requires no sample or reagent preparation prior to testing


    Monitor glycemic control

  • HbA1c from a small (1 µL) whole blood sample in 6 minutes
  • Flexible reporting of HbA1c% (NGSP, JDS, and Mono-S units) and IFCC (mmol/mol)
  • HbA1c patient trending graphs can be viewed or printed


        Detect early kidney disease

    • Albumin, Creatinine, and Albumin-to-Creatinine (A:C) ratio from a urine specimen in 7 minutes to report a quantitative protein status with automatic creatinine adjustment
    • Onboard GFR calculator indexes kidney function

        Improve workflow in the office or clinic

    • Self-contained cartridges facilitate easy, walkaway operation after sample loading
    • No sample or reagent preparation required
    • Bar-code scanner for safer and faster patient/operator ID entry
    • Review results on-screen or generate a hard copy report to minimize transcription errors in the office
    • Convenient local storage of up to 4,000 onboard records with powerful sorting capabilities
    • Automatically upload results to a PC via a USB flash drive to reduce manual logging and save time
    • Minimal maintenance requirements with automatic reminders to alert you when maintenance is due


        Simplify management of diabetes testing in     decentralized settings

    • Customizable security access modes support up to 1,000 operators, protect patient information, and prevent operation by unauthorized users
    • POCT1-A2 communication protocol streamlines data transfer for easy connectivity and fast, two-way communication to LIS/HIS, RAPIDComm® System, or other third-party POC data management systems
    • Automatically upload results and QC information to LIS/HIS to reduce manual logging and save time
    • Take testing oversight to the next level with RAPIDComm Data Management System to remotely manage multiple analyzers and operators to enhance compliance and improve risk management. POC coordinators can standardize test procedures, enforce QC protocols, control access privileges, define operator recertification requirements, and more. Customized alerts, reports, and audit trails ensure peace of mind and simplify accreditation and inspections
