What is POCT?
Point-Of-Care Technologies are medical diagnostic tests performed outside the laboratory in close proximity to where a patient is receiving care. This allows health care providers to make clinical decisions more rapidly, conveniently and efficiently.
ACME POCT assists and enables inventors of POC technologies for cardiac, pulmonary, hematologic, and sleep applications to translate them to improve patient care.
Point Of Care Technology Research Network
The Atlanta Center for Microsystems Engineered POC Technologies is part of the national NIH Point-of-Care Technologies Research Network (POCTRN). The goal of POCTRN is to develop technologies with clinical applications using a network model that enhances complementary strengths and builds multidisciplinary partnerships.
