Through its Lithuanian subsidiary UAB Kitron, Kitron has entered into an agreement with HemoCue AB concerning the production of their products HemoCue Hb201+, HemoCue Glucose 201+ and HemoCue Glucose 201 RT. The value of the agreement has been estimated at approximately NOK 40 million over 3 years.
The HemoCue Hb201+ provides an opportunity for quick, simple and reliable quantitative Hemoglobin results. The HemoCue Glucose 201+ is based on a glucose dehydrogenase method and consists of a small, dedicated analyser and a unique disposable microcuvette. Glucose 201+ and the new improved analyser Glucose 201 RT, produce immediate, accurate results for screening, diagnosing and monitoring diabetes, as well as monitoring neonatal blood glucose levels.
