Point Of Care Testing
Today, a majority of diagnostic testing occurs in centralized labs. Samples are collected in physicians’ clinics and then shipped to remote centralized labs. Typically, results are only available a few days after the test is performed. This delay may prevent patients from receiving timely, often life-saving, therapies.
Point of Care Testing (POCT) represents a new, transformative trend in the medical industry – the complete diagnostic tests (sample collection and analysis) is now in the physician’s clinic. This allows for quicker diagnosis and treatment. thereby, lowering costs to the patient.
Using innovations in molecular biology and a break-through in electronic imaging, we are bringing diagnostic tests to your physician’s office, allowing timely and more effective therapies.
