Does anyone use the Alere Afinion for Hgb A1C testing? If so, what are your thoughts as far as accurate results and reliability? Thanks

As a POL consultant, I have had experience with the Alere Afinion test for A1C. We have performed limited correlation studies between the BioRad D10 and the Afinion due to physician requests. Results were quite acceptable even though the Alere test method uses a fingerstick sample. We have found the Afinion to be easy to use as well.

I hope this helps.

We use the Alere Afinion for HgbA1c and ACR testing. It correlated well with the DCA we were using in the past and we have had no issues with Proficiency Testing.

We perform the testing on EDTA blood and not fingerstick.
