Point-of-care tests are carried out in close proximity of a patient. There are many electrochemical sensor applications developed and under development to measure specific health indicators or even determine if a certain disease is present in a blood or saliva sample.
Rapid and precise detection of viruses in a point of care setting is critical for applying appropriate countermeasures. For example, glucose test strips and a handheld potentiostat can detect the influenza virus with high accuracy.
Electrochemical blood glucose sensors have proven to be of great value for diabetic patients worldwide. Electrochemistry is the go-to technique for portable and fast point-of-care applications.
PalmSens BV offers electrochemical interfaces in the form of several different modules for those who want to develop their own product line with additional features. We can also offer a market-ready reader that can be tailored for a specific point-of-care sensor, this reader can have a bespoke solution for any type of sensor.
