With HA-8180V, A. Menarini Diagnostics scores a new technological achievement, taking haemoglobin analysis to an unprecedented level of velocity and accuracy.
With a 90 sec/sample throughput and only 3.4 min waiting time for first report, while maintaining a CV inferior to 1%*, HA-8180V is the fastest HPLC system for HbA1c and Hb variants analysis in the world. (A 48 sec/sample throughput Fast Mode is available for all “non-problematic” samples.)
Along with velocity and high precision, simplicity of use and augmented autonomy have been the guiding concepts in designing the device.
HA-8180V features a new type of column with integrated pre-filter that drastically reduces maintenance needs and a new LCD display allows the operator to monitor all relevant measurement or system parameters at a glance. HA-8180V is the perfect device to meet the increasing needs of accurate HbA1c tests and its HbS separation function makes it a highly reliable tool for the treatment of sickle-cell anaemia.
Indeed, this time-saving champion will become an indispensable instrument for all medium or big laboratories - in no time!

HA8180v Column

HA8180v Stirring Unit

HA-8180V features a new type of column with integrated pre-filter, which, along with the self-diagnostic function, minimises maintenance needs for a more stable system. HbA1c is separated inside the column through the HPLC method.


A bar-code reader compatible with all the bar-codes most frequently used in laboratories identifies every sample.


All whole blood samples are mixed before testing with a special stirring-unit (2000 U/min rotation). Only 14 μl of blood sample are needed for the test.

HA8180v Display

Instant printouts of detailed test results are available, showing HbF,
HbA1c, HbS and Hbc peaks, as well as indicating the presence of
HbD and HbE variants.


With a standard capacity of 10 racks (10 samples each) and the possibility to connect an additional sample loader of 15 racks, HA8180V boasts a 3 hours “walk-away” autonomy. Each rack is compatible with all the commonest sample containers and is tagged with a bar-code indicating specific testing parameters. A STAT-port allows urgent testing during the rack-run.


A user-friendly color LCD display shows the test results in mmol/mol unit (IFCC standard) and their conversion in HbA1c percent value (NGSP). The display also allows the monitoring of all relevant parameters such as reagents levels and traceability data or dysfunction of control elements or parts of the device at a glance.
