(Australia-NewsWire.Com, August 24, 2017 ) Point-of-care diagnostics allow a speedy, convenient, and cost-efficient way to diagnose diseases at healthcare centers and hospitals. Point-of-care diagnostics is a term collectively used for diagnostic procedures and tests performed on-site. As compared to conventional in-laboratory tests, point-of-care diagnostics have the advantage of speed and convenience without compromising on consistency. Point-of-care diagnostics help cut down on the need for sophisticated diagnostic systems for regular tests like blood tests and urine tests.
Many advanced point of care diagnostic products are on the verge of being used practically and widely. But, more than innovative and advanced point-of-care devices, there is an extensive need for inexpensive solutions that can be set up in regions where infectious diseases are highly prevalent. In developing regions, these tests are crucial in counterbalancing the lack of adequate laboratory capacity. This is one of the most promising opportunities that can be grabbed by Industry players.
In order to provide effective and fast diagnostic results, clinics and other healthcare establishments, are opting for point-of-care test, which are consequently influencing industrial growth. Advances in technology and introduction of cost effective and high quality medical solutions aimed at achieving miniaturization and lab automation are expected to serve the point-of-care diagnostics Industry as a vital driver. Additionally, healthcare practitioners have been observed to be increasingly more open and willing to adopt the use of point-of-care diagnostic consumables and medical devices thereby resulting in rapid demand and growth of this Industry. However, there are some certain Industry restraints that players need to overcome. The effort and co-ordination required among healthcare centers, researchers, practitioners and manufacturers is the greatest restraining factor for the growth of point-of-care diagnostics Industry. Also, reluctance from the industry towards changing the existing norms, frequent product recalls, stringent regulatory framework and unfavorable reimbursement scenario are some of the challenges faced by the point-of-care diagnostics Industry.
