The benefits of frangible seals in diagnostic Point-of-Care testing

Published Frangible seals enable the controlled release of reagents, eliminating the need for complex fluid handling systems while lowering costs and enhancing the performance of POC test devices. Changes in healthcare economics are clearly having an impact on point-of-care (POC) diagnostic testing. Market demand for remote testing is driving companies to develop easy-to-use platforms versus […]

Achieving cost effectiveness in Point-of-Care diagnostic devices with frangible seals

The point-of-care (POC) in-vitro diagnostic (IVD) market is¬†continuing to grow, with speculation that IVD could become the leading niche in the medical device industry by 2020 with more than $65 billion in sales. POC testing is supported by continuous technology improvements and the recognition that rapid test results offer economic benefits and potential patient benefits […]
