Inexpensive Multipurpose Point-of-Care Analyzer Unveiled at 2015 AACC Annual Meeting

An inexpensive point-of-care (POC) instrument capable of performing multiple clinical laboratory blood tests was unveiled at the 2015 AACC Annual Meeting & Clinical Lab Expo (Atlanta, GA, USA).

Investigators from DiaSys Diagnostics India (Mumbai, India) unveiled their new QDx InstaLab POC blood chemistry device. This instrument combines inexpensive microfluidic cartridge technology with novel nanomaterial-based plastic electrochemical biosensors.

The QDx InstaLab can perform all of the clinical tests that are routinely ordered as part of a yearly physical exam to evaluate organ function and check for conditions such as diabetes, liver disease, and kidney disease. Furthermore, the instrument can determine cholesterol levels and screen for bleeding problems.

The instrument was designed to perform these tests using samples comprising a few drops of blood from a finger prick. Results are available in three to 10 minutes or less.

“In areas where cost and efficiency are of paramount importance, labs will be able to consolidate all instrumentation into a single QDx InstaLab,” said Dr. Vijaywanth Mathur, head of research and development at DiaSys Diagnostics India. “This breakthrough technology will revolutionize and enable quality healthcare for all in low to middle income and high income countries, and particularly in rural, semirural, second tier, and third tier cities where there is no access to healthcare diagnostics or the cost per test is so high.”
