What is Point of Care Testing (POCT)

Point of care testing (POCT) is diagnostic testing that is done close to or at the site of patient care. 

This type of testing is done quickly, typically with results available within minutes, allowing for immediate 

treatment decisions without the need to send samples to a laboratory. POCT is used in a variety of healthcare settings and can be used to diagnose and monitor a number of conditions and diseases.
