POC Testing for Infectious Diseases Gains Traction in the European Molecular POC Testing Markets

Point of care (POC) diagnostics market has experienced great success due to its benefits of advanced technology, quick turnaround time and minimal manual interference. Although molecular diagnostics is a rapidly growing segment in the global in vitro diagnostics (IVD) market, the true potential of POC molecular test is yet to be realised. Nevertheless, infectious disease detection at the POC is expected to give the market a boost as this application is gradually picking up steam - especially with medical authorities working towards reducing the occurrence and recurrence of these diseases.

"After the success of HIV testing in POC format, the platform is being increasingly used to detect other sexually transmitted diseases such as chlamydia and gonorrhoea," says the analyst of this research service. "The adoption of these tests at screening centres, community clinics and other decentralised settings will accelerate the growth of POC infectious disease testing."

The current focus of researchers and universities is developing polymer disposable chips that can perform multiparametric READ MORE >
