Global Point-of-Care Diagnostics Market - 2019-2026
Global Point-of-Care Diagnostics Market Overview
Point of Care Testing (POCT) is a medical diagnostic testing performed outside the clinical laboratory in close proximity, where the patient receives care. POCT devices are often hand held or may be small portable analyzers. POCT testing include blood glucose, urine dipsticks, blood gases, chemistry, hematology, coagulation, cardiac markers, and pregnancy tests, among others.
The global point-of-care diagnostics market was worth $XX billion in 2018 and is forecasted to reach $XX billion by 2026, at a CAGR of XX% during the forecast period.
