In vitro diagnostics & point-of-care testing

Point-of-care testing

Point-of-care testing (POCT) enables timely diagnosis and thus improves patient care. Because the many functional components of POCT systems all have to work together perfectly, an interdisciplinary team is required to develop them. Testing the functional components of in vitro diagnostic (IVD) systems often requires complex and costly laboratory setups, even during the development phase. To ensure the smooth integration of individual components and their functionality in the IVD system, we develop customer-specific development and system control boards for optimizing, testing and validating IVD systems as well as their components.
