Point-of-CareTesting (POCT) is a method of testing that is conducted at the sampling site, using a portable analytical instrument and accompanying reagents to obtain rapid results.
* Analysis is carried out immediately at the sampling site, eliminating the need for complicated processing procedures when the specimen is tested in the laboratory;
* Get test results quickly;
* High real-time detection, low comprehensive cost, and no dependence on professional equipment.
* PCR is still dominant in the rapid test market
* POCT without the need for central laboratory equipment and reagents is the better route to market.
* NGS: high throughput, high cost, long lead time (2 days), significant threat to ethics and patient data security.
* CVD drugs require PGx to improve treatment outcomes, and labs in clinics and pharmacies lack the facilities and skilled technicians to test effectively.
