ポイントオブケア (POC) 検査とは、患者のいる場所または近くで行われる診断検査です。ラボのスタッフが検査を行う場合もありますが、多くの場合は医師、看護師、助手、救急隊員、研修医、薬剤師、患者自身が行います。
当レポートでは、ポイントオブケア (POC) 尿検査市場について調査分析を行い、市場概要、検査の概要、企業プロファイルなどについて包括的に分析し、まとめています。
Point of care (POC) tests are diagnostic tests that are performed at or near the site where the patient is located. POC testing may be performed by laboratory personnel, but often it is performed by non-laboratory personnel such as physicians, nurses, assistants in medical offices, emergency medical technicians (EMTs), medics, pharmacists, and the patients themselves (self-testing). One of the key benefits and market drivers for the POC testing market is the ability to have rapid results that can be used immediately for patient treatment decisions.
Some POC tests are manual tests, often performed with technologies based on dipsticks or strips. Among the tests on the traditional menu for POC testing is urine strips testing.
A sample type that has been used for many years is urine. Today, urine specimens are important for certain types of IVD testing. Urinalysis can be performed to detect certain metabolic disorders, kidney disease, bladder cancer, urinary tract infections, and certain other conditions. Urinalysis or the study of urine samples is already widespread and dipstick urinalysis is the highest volume POC test in the world. Urine is also a commonly used type of specimen for drugs of abuse testing. Point of Care (POC) Urinalysis Testing Market and Urinalysis Drugs of Abuse Testing Market examines the POC urine testing market.
The report examines the urine strip segment of the global POC professional testing and self-testing markets and the urinalysis segment of the POC professional drugs of abuse testing market, including:
While overall urinalysis test volumes are growing negligibly in most developed POC markets, increasing test automation provides an ancillary boost to the market through instrument sales. POC users stand to generate revenue by maximizing volume for the low-cost tests.
Worldwide, millions of dollars are spent annually on drug abuse testing. A major contributing factor to growth is the continued growth of illicit drug use worldwide, the emergence of new drugs of abuse and the availability of quality, cost-effective drugs of abuse testing products. Continued demand in the workplace, in sports and in government for fast, reliable drugs of abuse testing and technologies will be the catalyst for sustained growth.
Large and small companies are involved in the development and/or marketing of POC urine testing. Among the top and/or innovative competitors discussed within Corporate Profiles are:
