EKF Diagnostics manufactures a range of equipment that analyze vital organ functions through blood values. Its latest offering is the Quo-Lab, which tests the HbA1c levels in the bloodstream. HbA1c values are the best long-range indicators of elevated blood glucose levels and are used in both the detection of pre-diabetes, as well as in monitoring blood sugar control in Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes patients.

SurgiLance is currently available in seven models, ranging from 18–26 gauges and 1.0–2.3 mm penetration depths.
