Pre-analytics in PoCT

It is well noted errors in Point of Care Testing mostly occur in pre-analytics.  Many of these are based on how blood is collected.  The launch of our NEW operator competency program will focus on these errors made on devices within this phase.

In 2020, our training will be continuing this theme to support our customers in ensuring a good test, every time.  Look out for these sessions to be delivered by PoCT Coordinators throughout LHD's.  In the meantime, watch our video to learn about  GOOD WAYS TO COLLECT BLOOD.
