The Pixotest Point of Care Testing (POCT) system is proving to be the solution in integrating both portability and accuracy in a system
Diabetes is a killer on the loose. According to WHO, about 422 million people are living with diabetes, and it’s among the leading causes of death globally. While type 2 diabetes is common in adults, type 1 (which unfortunately cannot be prevented) can develop at any age. Early detection is important, and that’s where Ilara Health comes in. Pixotest POCT enables both HbA1 and Lipid testing from a single, easy to use device, with quick and accurate results.
The Pixotest Point of Care Testing (POCT) system is proving to be the solution in integrating both portability and accuracy in a system. With the device, medical practitioners can test patients at their comfort and get prompt and accurate results, hence improving efficiency and operation process in the facility.
What makes the PixoTest stand out as a Point of Care Testing system?
The PixoTest has a hand-held size design that allows for rapid bedside assessment at the convenience of both the patient and the doctor. Its modular design allows the user to test for multiple biomarkers – HbA1c test and Full Lipid Profile test – without changing devices.
The device enables faster turnaround time for patients, immediate care, and treatment as results are generated within minutes. Moreover, its intuitive user interface allows anyone to operate the device as it is easy to understand and learn.
The PixoTest POCT also has embedded wireless transmission elements which make all patient data to be seamlessly uploaded to the cloud for easier access and storage. This allows for effortless management of data which in turn reduces human error. The device uses dry chemistry, hence it doesn’t require a Quality Control certification as the device is accompanied by a calibration disk. The PixoTest POCT is FDA cleared and certified by IFCC.
How to put the PixoTest POCT system into practice:
- The PixoTest is very handy when testing for HbA1c and full lipid profile. A physician should recommend an HbA1c test if the patient has symptoms of diabetes.
- A physician should also recommend an HbA1c test if the patient is at risk of getting diabetes. Some of the risk factors include: being overweight or obese, having high blood pressure or a history of heart diseases, and physically inactive.
- A full lipid test should be conducted if a patient has a family history of heart disease. Some of the risk factors include high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, a patient who smokes, excess weight or obesity, lack of physical activity, or intake of a high fat diet.
