RALS POC Connectivity System

Connected to the devices used every day at the point-of-care (POC), the new RALS is packed with improvements based on feedback from users. Modern interface with cross-browser compatibility makes RALS more accessible. Data is consolidated into fewer pages with more filter options, and is presented in a consistent tabular format.


SARS-CoV-2 rapid test

The Xpert Xpress SARS-CoV-2 test delivers point-of-care (POC) results with the same level of performance seen in reference labs. The test is designed for use on GeneXpert Systems and can provide rapid detection of SARS-CoV-2 in as soon as 30 minutes for positive results, with less than a minute of hands-on time to prepare the sample.


Whole blood BHB and glucose meter

The STAT-Site WB is a dual-use Beta-Hydroxybutyrate and glucose meter for professional use in diabetes management. The new FDA CLIA-waived handheld analyzer delivers quantitative results within 5-10 seconds and can be used in point-of-care (POC) and Certificate of Waiver settings. The meter is easy-to-use and reagent-free, using test strips to which whole blood is added directly.

EKF Diagnostics

POC Platform

The Accula System is a visually read test using RT-PCR technology to detect Flu A/Flu B, RSV and/or SARS-CoV-2 via nasal swab samples at the point of care. The Accula is easy to use, fits in the palm of your hand and provides laboratory-quality results in approximately 30 minutes.

Mesa Biotech

Glucose meter

The StatStrip is the only glucose meter to receive clearance by the FDA for use with all patients, in all departments including with critically ill patients, on all sample types. It has no known clinical interferences, and measures and corrects for interferences, which cause incorrect glucose results in other meters and patient mismanagement.

Nova Biomedical

POCT Software

The Orchard Trellis point-of-care testing (POCT) management and integration software supports centralized oversight of POCT programs. Trellis integrates POCT results into the EHR, tracks competency assessments, manages devices across locations, and offers flexible implementation options. Additional features include automated billing, QC, decision-support rules, and comprehensive reporting.

Orchard Software

Immunoassay analyzer

The PATHFAST is an easy- to-use, bench-top chemiluminescent immunoassay analyzer providing affordable, core-lab quality results from whole blood samples in under 17 minutes. With flexibility to run up to six tests simultaneously, and results unaffected by hemolysis, PATHFAST ensures accurate results are available quickly, ensuring improved patient outcomes, and overall cardiac care.


Urinalysis QC

The Dipper POCT dipstick control features room temperature stability of three months and three years refrigerated from date of manufacture. Designed for use in every testing environment, the unique pouch design of the Dipper POCT allows users to visually verify full immersion of the dipstick, minimize the risk of contamination and reduce the volume required for testing.


SARS Antigen FIA

The Sofia SARS Antigen FIA uses advanced immunofluorescence-based lateral flow technology for qualitative detection of nucleocapsid protein from SARS-CoV-2. The Sofia SARS Antigen FIA, with the Sofia 2 and Sofia analyzers, provides automated and objective results in 15 minutes, allowing for testing of patients suspected of COVID-19/2019-nCoV in near-patient testing environments.


In vitro rapid test

The OSOM Ultra Plus Flu A & B Test is a CLIA-waived in vitro rapid qualitative test that detects influenza type A and type B nucleoprotein antigens. The test provides rapid results at the point-of-care (POC) with sensitivity meeting or exciting reader devices without the need for an instrument.
