EKF Diagnostics (Cardiff, Wales, UK) is introducing its latest product developments and offerings at MEDICA 2022, Düsseldorf, Germany, 14-17 November. The products being highlighted by EKF at the event include its newly-introduced point-of-care testing (POCT) connectivity solutions, including the enhanced DiaSpect Tm hand-held hemoglobin analyzer and the new EKF Link digital connectivity software. In addition to its POCT products, EKF is also highlighting its growing contract manufacturing services to the healthcare industry.

In Hall 3 at Stand B69, the EKF team is available to demonstrate how its new state-of-the-art EKF Link middleware can enable healthcare providers to readily manage their POC analyzers and all generated data via one centralized platform. An intuitive, open solution, EKF Link can be interfaced to most vendors’ POC analyzers, in addition to EKF’s own portfolio. This facilitates real-time remote management and secure transfer of data, including patient test results, QC results, operator management, and analyzer configuration within a range of healthcare settings.

Adding to the ever-growing list of POC analyzers that are compatible with EKF Link, the enhanced DiaSpect Tm hemoglobin analyzer now offers calculated hematocrit values, and its rapid test results can be securely sent to centralized Laboratory Information Systems (LIS) or Patient Information Systems (PIS). The palm-sized analyzer’s new digital connectivity capabilities enabled by EKF Link also allows authorized users to easily access its near-patient results through a web browser, whatever their location, supporting seamless patient care.

EKF is also highlighting its global contract manufacturing capabilities covering configuration of product, sourcing materials, providing state-of-the-art bulk formulation and dispensing facilities, through to services such as kitting, labeling and packaging. With extensive facilities in the U.S., UK and Germany, EKF has a proven track record of developing and manufacturing quality products for a range of markets, industries, and businesses - from start-ups to industry leaders – across the globe.

“We look forward to welcoming visitors to our stand at MEDICA where our team of product and contract manufacturing specialists will be on hand to discuss our broad range of medical diagnostics products and manufacturing services,” said Mike Salter, CEO, EKF Diagnostics. “We are particularly excited to be able to demonstrate our enhanced capabilities in POCT connectivity which provides hospitals, laboratories and clinicians with the ability to manage and evaluate their patient and user data easily and securely.”
