The in-vitro examination of specimens from the human body to provide information for diagnostic, monitoring, or compatibility purposes has long been done by clinical laboratories. To help improve patient outcomes, reduce hospital stays, and lower costs, IVD testing is moving to doctors’ offices and emergency departments. There is a myriad of ways to design rapid, portable diagnostics, and innovation is driving POC IVD product development. In this session, you’ll hear from experts about the marketplace appetite for POC products and how some are replacing more traditional diagnostic tools.

Topics covered include:
  • Trends and areas of unmet need in POC products
  • What is appropriate for home/patient use vs. use in clinical settings?
  • Top design challenges for product developers
  • What you need to know about regulatory concerns for IVD products under EU Medical Device Regulations (MDRs) and the Clinical Laboratory Improvements Amendments
