Field evaluation of near point of care Cepheid GeneXpert HIV-1 Qual for early infant diagnosis.

Access to point-of-care HIV testing shortens turn-around times, time to diagnosis and reduces loss to follow-up hence minimizing barriers to early linkage to care and treatment among HIV infected infa...

Field evaluation of GeneXpert (Cepheid) HCV performance for RNA quantification in a Genotype 1 and 6 predominant patient population in Cambodia.

GeneXpert (Cepheid) is the only WHO prequalified platform for Hepatitis C Virus (HCV) Nucleic Acid Amplification Testing that is suitable for point-of-care use in resource-limited contexts. However, i...

Evaluation of the GeneXpert MTB/RIF in patients with presumptive tuberculous meningitis.

Meningitis caused by Mycobacterium tuberculosis is a major cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide. We evaluated the performance of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) testing with the GeneXpert MTB/RIF assa...

Interchangeability of Procalcitonin Measurements Using the Point of Care Testing i-CHROMATM Reader and the Automated Liaison XL.

Our aim was to verify if procalcitonin (PCT) measurements using the new point-of-care testing i-CHROMATM are interchangeable with those of Liaison XL.

Point-of-care Coagulation Testing in Neurosurgery.

Disorders of the coagulation system can seriously impact the clinical course and outcome of neurosurgical patients. Due to the anatomical location of the central nervous system within the closed skull...

Laboratory and other services provided to patients at the bedside. These include diagnostic and laboratory testing using automated information entry.

Purchasers are provided information on the quality of health care, including patient outcomes and health status, with data on the dollar outlays going towards health. The focus is on managing the use of the health care system to reduce inappropriate care and to identify and reward the best-performing providers.
