    Five commercial chromatography kits for the measurement of glycosylated haemoglobin have been compared using blood specimens obtained from diabetic patients and from non-diabetic controls. Assessment was based on accuracy, general impressions of practicality, and overall performance. The precision of each technique was assessed by selecting five diabetic and five non-diabetic specimens and testing each one by each technique. All systems tested were of a high standard and the advantages and disadvantages of each system are discussed.
