Globally, an estimated 415 million people have diabetes — translating to about one in eleven adults — with the number set to hit 642 million by 2040. However, the course of the disease can be altered significantly via early detection and intervention. One way of doing this is by using the Siemens DCA Vantage Analyzer, a multipurpose point of care analyzer for kidney and diabetes disease that is simple to use and generates results in minutes.

The DCA Vantage Analyzer is a well-known device fitted with robust technology for simplified testing and delivery of accurate, clinically relevant results that will help you make better decisions. The DCA is one of just two HbA1c analyzers on the market that meets stringent National Glycohemoglobin Standardization Program (NGSP) performance criteria. The unit provides the confidence that your patients deserve. It also helps in early kidney diseases detection in physician offices, point-of-care sites run by hospitals, and multisite practices.

Improved Patient Confidence

You can now perform critical in-house tests and take immediate action with the patient still in your facility. Studies indicate that face-to-face testing as well as direct doctor-patient interaction significantly improves patient compliance. Only a small blood sample is required, increasing patient comfort.
