Abstract

HbA1c monitoring in the Scottish Highlands is by HPLC analysis of GP collected venous samples at a centralised laboratory. Availability of HbA1c results at clinic appointments is less than ideal due to patient reticence and availability/timeliness of appointments. This study assessed the clinical performance and patient acceptance of HemaSpot™ blood collection devices as an alternative blood collection method.
