Over the last decade, there has been an increase in the use of diagnostic tools at Investigator sites. Applications of hand held, portable and table top models have been published in the methods section of several large clinical trial reports. In some studies, encrypted versions of these diagnostic tools were employed to reduce bias. We have direct experience with the sourcing, development, training and application of these unique diagnostic tools.

Pharmaceutical Trials Employing POCT
The following is a partial listing of clinical trials performed to establish efficacy of novel pharmaceuticals that have employed point-of-care testing (POCT) as an integral part of the protocol. The listed studies are peer reviewed publications of study results.
The Case for the Use of Point-of-Care Testing in Pharmaceutical Clinical Trials
Clinical trials that are designed to evaluate the efficacy of novel pharmaceuticals require a variety of diagnostic tests to be performed on all enrolled patients. This article examines and compares the central lab and point-of-care testing options.
Trends in Clinical Practices: Growth of POCT
Point-of-care testing (POCT) is an increasingly popular means of delivering test results traditionally obtained from a laboratory. When used appropriately, POCT can improve patient outcome by providing a faster diagnostic result and a shorter timeframe to therapeutic intervention.
Turn-Around Time Case Study
This study compares POCT to Central Lab with regards to turn-around time of results.
Hybrid Laboratory Testing
Combining the technology available in a central lab with POCT devices offers to clinical trial sponsors the opportunity to have tests performed at the investigator site, a pharmacy, a remote clinic or at home. The test or battery of tests run on the POCT device using a whole blood sample that does not need to be centrifuged or shipped offers not only cost savings but also enhanced trial data integrity, since approximately 2-3% of samples are lost in transit to the central lab and any number of samples may be compromised due to extremes in temperature or pressure encountered in transit.

Katrina, the Tsunami, and Point-of-Care Testing
We assessed how point-of-care testing (POCT), diagnostic testing at or near the site of patient care, can optimize diagnosis, triage, and patient monitoring during disasters. We surveyed 4 primary care units(PCUs) and 10 hospitals in provinces hit hardest by the tsunami in Thailand and 22 hospitals in Katrinaaffected areas. We assessed POCT, critical care testing, critical values notification, demographics, and disaster responses.
