QuidelOrtho Corporation (San Diego, CA, USA) is highlighting the latest advances in laboratory testing and point-of-care diagnostics at the Euromedlab Congress in Rome. The company is demonstrating how effectively combining point-of-care and laboratory testing can enhance patient care and improve overall healthcare outcomes. QuidelOrtho’s advanced lab management tools and expertise can help labs streamline their workflow, automate operations, and efficiently analyze data, thereby enhancing overall efficiency without compromising on quality.

At EuroMedLab Rome 2023, the company is demonstrating Savanna – a true sample-to-result point-of-care multiplex molecular solution. The cutting-edge system can accurately and simultaneously test for SARS-CoV-2, Flu A, Flu B, and RSV on a panel within 20 minutes. Besides delivering rapid results, the RVP4 also delivers superior clinical performance and possesses the capability to detect SARS-CoV-2 variants. Additionally, QuidelOrtho is demonstrating how its Vitros XT 7600 Integrated System can boost lab efficiency, offering a wide-ranging menu of over 160 assays, thus future-proofing labs and preparing them for potential Vitros Automation incorporation. This system is also time-efficient, with a first-pass yield of 96.5% and incorporates E-Connectivity Technology for uninterrupted operation. The company's innovative waterless system further maximizes lab space and enhances productivity.

Among QuidelOrtho’s innovative point-of-care solutions being featured at the industry event is the TriageTrue High Sensitivity Troponin I Test. This revolutionary test empowers medical professionals to make informed decisions that lead to better patient outcomes and overall improved healthcare efficiency. The test merges ER and lab testing, delivering high diagnostic precision with results available in under 20 minutes. The quick results can expedite patient handling, minimize hospital stay duration, and enhance ED throughput. In addition, QuidelOrtho is participating in the Euromedlab 2023 Satellite Meeting - Point-of-Care Testing: Home, Hospital and Beyond event. The company’s Vendor Talk by Dr. Holger Gundelach, Head of EMEA POC-IA Business Unit and Clinical Value at QuidelOrtho, on "The time is now – Accelerate patient management at the point-of-care" will be providing valuable insights and exploring the future of point-of-care testing.
