The ability to perform rapid tests outside the clinical laboratory means medical providers can deliver a diagnosis sooner allowing an earlier start to treatment and a faster recovery for patients. Point of Care (PoC) diagnostics technology is designed to do this. It enables decentralized testing for infectious diseases, STDs, and more.
PoC diagnostics innovators are working to build technologies that can identify more than one type of disease—for example, testing for both the flu and COVID on the same device. A multipurpose PoC solution requires a companion electronic device that is not only accurate but is also easily upgradable when new disease variants emerge or testing menus expand. Analog Devices is uniquely positioned with a portfolio of both electrochemical and optical diagnostic solutions, providing a measurement engine to complement a range of biosensors and chemistries while enabling a platform that can be upgraded using the software.
What You Will Learn:
- An introduction to the key electronic technology-blocks when designing a PoC system. Including a discussion on unique PoC design trade-offs between various electronic receiver technologies.
- Optical Solutions
- How optical receive techniques enable highly sensitive and specific results for fluorescence detection and how integrated solutions can provide a key advantage.
- Electrochemical Solutions
- How integrated electrochemical solutions facilitate the creation of flexible and future-proof platforms.
- Electronic Authentication
- How secure electronic authenticating can mitigate the risk of reuse, misuse and counterfeit sampling.
