Point of Care Testing (POC) is defined as medical diagnostic testing performed outside the clinical laboratory in close proximity to where the patient is receiving care. POC is typically performed by non-laboratory personnel and the results are used for clinical decision making. POC has a range of complexity and procedures that vary from manual methodologies to automated analyzers. POC devices are often ‘handheld’ or may be small portable analyzers. POC analyzers are small-scale analyzers, often used in small laboratories and physician labs, where the workload and daily sample inflow is less. They often use disposable test cartridges and can provide faster results.
