Group K Diagnostics (GKD; Philadelphia, PA, USA) demonstrated its KromaHealth Kit that enables point-of-care testing and fast results across a suite of various diagnostics at AACC 2021.

Every year, the global laboratory medicine community comes together at AACC to collaborate and create system-wide changes that improve patient outcomes and enhance the quality of life for all. The exhibition provides a platform to connect with the industry leaders making ground-breaking advancements in laboratory medicine, including clinical chemistry, molecular diagnostics, mass spectrometry, translational medicine, and lab management.

At this year’s AACC, GKD demonstrated its KromaHealth Kit which consists of a single-platform, versatile, point-of-care device, known as KromaHealth, paired with a mobile application used to read the test results, known as KromaViewer. Depending on the test, a user needs to simply place a few drops of blood, serum or urine on the device's testing sites to induce a color change that is translated into a clear diagnosis through an image processing algorithm. The process is simple and can be done in the physician's office with results provided before the patient leaves the physician’s office. The device is for investigational use only and its performance characteristics have not been established

GKD is currently developing the GKD Analytics Manager which is a dashboard for health system operators and researchers to monitor testing operations and collect anonymized results to analyze population health, disease management and compliance. GKD is also developing the MyGKD app which gives patients the ability view and track test results over time on their mobile phones. With this convenient access to their diagnostics, patients can own their results and be engaged in the effectiveness of their care.
