A fully automated system that measures HbA1C glycated haemoglobin using the gold standard High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC) for the monitoring and management of diabetic patients. The system gives result in 48 seconds in fast mode, and 90 seconds in variant mode making it the fastest HbA1c analyzer in the world. This state-of-the-art technology allows you to discriminate HbA1c versus common haemoglobin variants such as HbS, HbC and HbF which although rare are the most prevalent of all haemoglobinopathies. With its built-in sample stirring capability, manual mixing is eliminated allowing you to experience its true walk-away feature. . This 5th generation Arkray ADAMS series is equipped with advanced features that provides information necessary for monitoring average blood glucose level.

The fastest measurement in the world

The HA-8180V incorporates unique HPLC column technology to make it the fastest analyzer of its kind the world.

Variant Mode: Time until first report is just 3.5 minutes. For subsequent samples, measurement takes just 90 seconds.

Fast Mode: Time until first report is just 1.9 minutes. For subsequent samples, measurement takes just 48 seconds.


Switching between Variant mode and Fast mode is performed via the operator panel on the analyzer, making things simpler for the user. The same reagents and column are used for both Variant and Fast modes.

Highly-accurate measurements

The highly accurate measurements are the result of the HPLC measurement principle. The measurement result includes information of each peak and chromatogram. The result will be shown in both IFCC and NGSP units.

Easy-to-follow user interface: Save time, avoid errors.

A large-size color LCD displays actual result, shows analyzer status, comments to operation procedure or informs the user about the remaining reagent volume.

Sample-stirring function

The automatic sample-stirring function before measurement prevents fluctuation in measurement results caused by blood cell sedimentation.


No special tools are required for daily maintenance. Exchanged parts are hand-tightened, minimizing the workload of the user. The pre-filter is already integrated with the column eliminating the hassle of exchanging it. Replacement of the filter is not required throughout the column life.

Cap-piercing method

The HA-8180V uses a cap-piercing method which enables the setting of capped blood collection tubes in sample racks. The accurate and direct aspiration of blood samples not only reduces workload but also helps to protect lab technicians from infection.
