About POC infectious diseases
POC diagnosis for infectious diseases refers to diagnostic tests performed near the site of patient care. The testing site is usually a patient's bedside, physician's clinic, ICU, operating room, emergency room, or wherever medical care may be necessary. A healthcare professional or a nurse attending the patient will obtain the specimen, perform analysis, and record the result. The main purpose of POC testing is to decrease the time between diagnosis and treatment. This test is either antibody-based or microbial particle-based detection method, which includes ELISA, agglutination, optical immunoassays, or lateral flow immunochromatography. Advances in POC technology has facilitated in data storage and data sharing and communication with public health agencies. Performing this test for screening infectious diseases extends its applications to the community practice setting. For instance, processing accurate data on the prevalence of influenza in community could help curtail inappropriate use of antibacterial agents and improve the allocation of vaccines to areas of highest need.
