How to Streamline Point of Care Instrument Development
What to consider when developing fluidics for a POCT system
Point of Care (POCT) and Molecular Diagnostics (Mdx) testing instruments can be placed at or near the point of patient care and offer significant advantages over traditional central lab in vitro diagnostics (IVD) systems including more rapid treatment, reduced cost of care and increasing capacity of hospitals and clinics.
A recent study shows that use of a POCT system significantly decreased the duration of antibiotic use, the length of patient stay, and time spent in isolation.
