CERA-CHEK HB Plus, a hemoglobin tester developed by Ceragem Medisys, has obtained approval from Korea Food and Drug Agency and will be promoted in the local markets, the bio-tech firm said in a statement Thursday.
Ceragem is the first company in Korea to apply new electro-chemical biosensor technology to a product. The latest technology allows customers check the level of hemoglobin in their blood within 5 seconds and with only 1 micro-liter of blood, it said.
The product features a side-grip strip in order to minimize blood contact and prevent possible infection during the self-screening of hemoglobin level.
Ceragem Medisys is an affiliate of Ceragem, a leading manufacturer of thermal massage beds.
