The A1cNow+ test is annually certified by the National Glycohemoglobin Standardization Program (NGSP) and therefore traceable to the DCCT.

Further, each lot is factory calibrated using a set of blood samples that have been quantitated by an NGSP certified laboratory using an NGSP certified method. Since in-field calibration is neither needed nor possible, the user cannot alter the accuracy of the test. Allowing for the normal variation seen with all laboratory methods, a 7% A1C using A1cNow+ will thus be, on average, the same as a 7% A1C on other instruments that are also calibrated to NGSP standards.

Bayer's A1cNow+ monitor provides accurate, in-office A1c results, empowering physicians to make on the spot treatment decisions for their patients with diabetes.

Getting quick, accurate A1C results just got even easier with the new A1cNow+ Sampler.
