  • The LumiraDx HbA1c test is designed to address the growing clinical need for accessible and reliable HbA1c testing in community-based healthcare settings such as primary care, diabetes clinics, rural clinics, retail pharmacy & other decentralised healthcare settings
  • The actively controlled microfluidic immunoassay is run on the highly portable LumiraDx Platform and designed for near-patient testing with connected results in under seven minutes
  • The addition of HbA1c to the rapidly growing LumiraDx test menu, enables the consolidation of multiple instruments to a single, next-generation point of care Platform; all with a common workflow

LONDON, Nov. 14, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- LumiraDx Limited (Nasdaq: LMDX), a next-generation point of care diagnostics company, today announced the continued commercial expansion of its HbA1c test, for professional use across multiple care settings. Used alongside the LumiraDx Platform, the test monitors known diabetic patients’ HbA1c levels and also serves as an aid in screening and identifying patients who may be at risk for developing diabetes. Providing results in under seven minutes from sample application, the test allows improved efficiency and convenience with on-the-spot diabetes screening and monitoring at the patient’s side. The company announced the assay had achieved CE marking in late May of this year.

Today’s announcement comes on the heels of today’s World Diabetes Day which called attention to recent figures from the IDF Diabetes Atlas that 1 in 10 adults now have diabetes and nearly 1 in 2 are undiagnosed. 1 The portability and flexibility of the LumiraDx Platform enables the LumiraDx HbA1c test to address the growing clinical need for accessible and reliable HbA1c testing in the community healthcare setting to aid in quicker clinical decision making. The LumiraDx HbA1c test has a reportable range of 20 - 130 mmol/mol HbA1c (4.0 - 14.0% HbA1c). In an external, multi-site clinical study, the test achieved precision, expressed as mean paired replicate %CV, of ≤2.50% (NGSP) in both capillary and venous whole blood.

David Walton, LumiraDx’s Chief Commercial Officer commented, “As the global prevalence of diabetes is increasing, it’s critical for healthcare professionals to have access to rapid and reliable HbA1c results. The availability of an immediate, lab-comparable HbA1c test has been shown to improve patient outcomes through improved diabetes management. 2,3 In addition, there are a number of well-known comorbidities associated with diabetes. These are supported through our multi-assay testing Platform - including tests for cardiac biomarkers, coagulation, and inflammation- making the LumiraDx Platform an ideal tool for improving patient outcomes within the community healthcare setting.”

Professor Garry John, Consultant Clinical Biochemist, Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital, current Secretary of the IFCC Executive Committee of the Scientific Division (SD) and former Chairperson of the IFCC Working Group for the Global Standardisation of HbA1c, Honorary Professor, Norwich Medical School (UEA), explained, “Decentralised diabetes testing allows people to go to their GP or pharmacy and have these tests done there. This is important because it allows individuals to see their results immediately and therefore encourages them to achieve the target set out for them. It also enables the healthcare provider to be reassured that the level of improvement or control is a true representation of the metabolic situation.” He continued, “Basic laboratory support for clinical colleagues providing healthcare is fundamental; anything that allows our clinical teams to gather the complete information they need on the patient they are dealing with at that point in time is central to good metabolic control.”

Johannes Pachler, Managing Director of Leupamed Medizintechnik GmbH, a leading medical equipment supplier in Austria, commented, “The HbA1c test is a welcome addition to the LumiraDx Platform for our customers, which includes more than 100 LumiraDx Platforms used by GPs and internal medicine groups. We know there is tremendous value for clinicians being able to share immediate results with patients - this is particularly true for the monitoring and screening of diabetes. The intuitive nature of the Platform and the accurate results of the HbA1c test make it an important tool for diabetes management and clinicians are already seeing the positive impact the test can make on patient care.”

SKEL fjárfestingafélag hf.: Amendment to the financial calendar and previously disclosed information4.2.2023 19:13:54 CET | Press release

The audit of SKEL’s financial statements for the year 2022, which has not been finalized, has resulted in a change of its presentation due to the company‘s transition into an investment company. Shares in subsidiaries were capitalized according to the equity method until year end 2021 but are recognised at fair value through profit or loss from the beginning of 2022. This results in a previously unrealized fair value change from 2021 of ISK 2.6 billion that was formerly accounted for directly through equity, will instead be recognised in the income statement for 2022. This change of presentation has no effect of previously announced equity for year-end 2022 of ISK 33.0-33.5 billion. Further, this does not alter the company’s ability to pay dividend. The company‘s estimated earnings net of tax will, however, increase by ISK 2.6 billion and amount to ISK 17.1-17.6 billion instead of ISK 14.5-15.0 billion as was previously announced on 31 January 2023. The company has decided to change th
