HemChecks avläsare kalibrerad med toppresultat Det medicintekniska bolaget HemCheck, som utvecklar ett patientnära test för detektion av hemolys, kan idag meddela att den digitala avläsare som utgör en del av bolagets produktkoncept Helge, kalibrerats med mycket gott resultat. Detta skedde genom studier i egen regi. Avläsaren kan nu färdigställas och produktkonceptet kommer därmed ett steg närmare CE-märkning. Som ett led i att färdigställa bolagets produktkoncept Helge har HemCheck under hösten utfört studier i egen regi med hjälp av blod från frivilliga bloddonatorer.
