When the requirement is for infectious disease testing, every minute counts to inform treatment decisions and slow the risk of transmission. Having rapid multiplex PCR testing at the point of need can make life better for millions of people in hospitals, clinics, airports, care homes, events, workplaces, and a wider variety of other settings. Now, a portable and simple to use rapid multiplex PCR testing system delivers fast, accurate and actionable results in approximately 30 minutes at the point of need.

The Q-POC platform from QuantuMDx Group Ltd. (Tyne and Wear, UK) compresses an entire molecular diagnosis laboratory into a simple-to-use, accessible and portable single device that produces results in approximately 30 minutes. The many innovative features incorporated into the Q-POC platform make it a safe rapid multiplex PCR testing solution for all clinical environments. With the Q-POC supercharged platform, it is no longer necessary to wait hours or days for test results.

The Q-POCT platform has been engineered to limit the need for highly skilled operators and offer a smooth user experience behind each interaction with its intuitive interface. The software is designed with the simplicity and familiarity of smartphone and tablet interfaces. It requires only three minutes hands-on-time to get each test started, using easy to follow, guided workflows on the touch screen. A ready to use solution, with all its simplicity, accuracy and speed, the Q-POCT requires no calibration or preventive maintenance. Each test cassette contains all the necessary reagents to complete a test and can be stored and shipped at room temperature. Users can just load the cassette and press go.

A ton of tech is behind every result, with intelligent multilingual software algorithms integrated into the Q-POCT platform. Clear, simple test results are automatically generated by sophisticated software algorithms, removing any complicated interpretation of the result. The Q-POCT software has been designed with the user in mind and uses intuitive, user centric software design similar to a smartphone allowing clear and easy reporting. The small, portable, battery-operated Q-POCT system marks a huge leap in rapid multiplex PCR testing. Its compact design, as well as its internal lithium-ion battery, supports use in a wide variety of clinical settings, at the Point of Need.
