Point-of-Care Analyzers for Fast, Accurate Diagnostic Test Results

by Jeremy Linder Lab Equipment Supplier
Point-of-care analyzers (POC) are diagnostic devices that can be used near or at the site of patients for a relatively fast diagnosis. 







Point-of-care analyzers are used to perform medical tests at or near the location of patient care. These devices are generally used in health care provider’s offices, hospitals and in patient's homes.  They are used to test glucose and cholesterol levels, perform electrolyte and enzyme analysis, test for drugs of abuse and for infectious diseases, and for pregnancy testing. Blood gas and cardiac marker tests, and fecal occult blood tests (FOBT) can also be done using POC diagnostic devices.  Both handheld and benchtop POC devices are available in leading online laboratory equipment stores.
