Noninvasive Hemoglobin Testing, Prospective Blood Donors


The objective of this clinical investigation is to evaluate the pulse oximeter devices for screening prospective blood donors. The purpose study is to report on the accuracy of noninvasive hemoglobin (SpHb) as compared to hemoglobin measurements obtained from a laboratory hematology analyzer in a blood donation setting.
