Aims: To verify monoplex and multiplex gene-specific linear-after-the-exponential polymerase chain reaction (LATE-PCR) assays for identifying 17 microbial pathogens (i.e., Klebsiella sp., Acinetobacter baumannii, Staphylococcus aureus, Enterobacter sp., Pseudomonas aeruginosa, coagulase negative staphylococci, Enterococcus sp., Candida sp.) common...
Article
Aims: The goal of this study was to construct a single-tube multiplex molecular diagnostic assay using linear-after-the-exponential (LATE)-PCR for the detection of 17 microbial pathogens commonly associated with septicaemia. Methods and results: The assay described here detects 17 pathogens associated with sepsis via amplification and analysis o...
Article
Objective evidence-based national surveys serve as a first step in identifying suitable point-of-care device designs, effective test clusters, and environmental operating conditions. Preliminary survey results show the need for point-of-care testing (POCT) devices using test clusters that specifically detect pathogens found in disaster scenarios. H...

Point-of-care testing (POCT)1 draws vitality from the invention of new biosensors and, in this issue of Clinical Chemistry , takes a major step forward with the introduction of an amperometric test strip that assesses thrombin generation (1). Historically, on-site whole-blood measurements, such as the activated coagulation time (2)(3) and ionized c...

We assessed the performance of a point-of-care (POC) glucose meter system (GMS) with multitasking test strip by using the locally-smoothed (LS) median absolute difference (MAD) curve method in conjunction with a modified Bland-Altman difference plot and superimposed International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 15197 tolerance bands. We anal...
Article
The 2004 tsunami in Southeast Asia and Hurricane Katrina showed that point-of-care testing (POCT) was both needed and feasible in acute disaster response and follow-up recovery. However, POCT devices made for routine clinical use and the consumer market are not adequate for disaster conditions. We explain the rationale for developing field-robust p...
Article
Point-of-care testing is useful when caring for patients in hospital settings and in emergency and disaster situations. However, point-of-care professional practice lacks components, such as standardization, harmonization, and consistency, which would substantially improve patient care if implemented. Therefore, we propose adoption of whole-blood s...
