From the perspective of application fields, POCT products can be used in public health fields such as clinical inspection, chronic disease monitoring, emergency counter-terrorism, disaster medical rescue, infectious disease monitoring, inspection and quarantine, food safety, drug inspection, etc. At Hipro, point of care use can be divided into three types of point of care testing in medical fields, which are the use of immunoassay analyzers, diagnostic reagents and SARS-CoV-2 products. Hipro different types of immunoassay analyzers hold the characteristics of easiness, rapidness, comprehensiveness and accuracy. Diagnostic reagents of Hipro have a wide testing range including infection test, cardiovascular test, renal function test, rheumatism test, gastric function test, liver test, autoimmunity test, hormone test, tumor marker test and microelement test. And SARS-CoV-2 test kits can effectively indicate human respiratory infections.
POCT diagnostics belongs to the subdivision field of the in vitro diagnostic industry. POCT does not require professional clinical laboratory operations. It doesn't need sample processing, sample inspection, equipment testing, data processing and data transmission and other complicated steps, but can get results directly and quickly. It has become one of the fastest growing segments of the IVD industry.
PCR allows for rapid and highly specific diagnosis of infectious diseases, including those caused by bacteria or viruses. PCR also permits identification of non-cultivatable or slow-growing microorganisms such as mycobacteria, anaerobic bacteria, or viruses from tissue culture assays and animal models. The basis for PCR diagnostic applications in microbiology is the detection of infectious agents and the discrimination of non-pathogenic from pathogenic strains by virtue of specific genes. PCR analysis is also essential to preimplantation genetic diagnosis, where individual cells of a developing embryo are tested for mutations. In addition, PCR can also be used as part of a sensitive test for tissue typing, vital to organ transplantation.（From wikipedia）
