Numerous studies show significant differences in the turnaround time of test results from point of care analysers versus centralised placements. These differences can prove extremely critical, as guidelines for cardiac markers call for a decision within a maximum of 60 minutes and typically within 30 minutes.
Radiometer’s AQT90 FLEX immunoassay analyser consistently meets these guidelines.
When you have length of stay department metrics to meet and every minute counts, the AQT90 FLEX analyser can help manage bed capacity and patient flow.
Considering a transition to POC testing?
National Boards of technical evaluation around the world have shown that point-of-care testing improves patient flow. The savings associated with a more efficient patient flow will often offset the initial costs of moving immunoassay testing to the ED.
