Using its core competencies in low volume non-contact and contact dispensing, cutting, and laminating, BioDot has developed a range of equipment for the research, development and manufacture of diagnostic tests.
With a commitment to fully understanding our customer requirements, BioDot’s personnel have a genuine wish to help you develop your research ideas. Our sales teams are highly trained in providing expert advice in both process and material handling needs. They are backed by strong support from teams of application scientists and service engineers.
BioDot has developed an extensive quantitative, non contact dispensing portfolio, that encompasses volumes From 50 pL to 250 mL with Reagents of widely varying properties. These technologies are part of a worldwide intellectual property portfolio.
BioDot has developed, both individual modules and workstations as well as InLine configurations to increase throughput and reduce material handling. For all processing applications, vision quality control can be incorporated.
BioDot also offers a full suite of support programs, including preventative maintenance, IQ/OQ programs, as well as application support.
A methodology of testing or analyzing within a simulated or organic environment for purposes of biomedical research.
From a biomedical point of view, Point-of-care (POC) can be described as testing or analysis at the site where a simulated environment (and sometimes not simulated but organic. I.E, a patient suffering from a disease) is utilized to conduct research on a given task or problem. Point of care is conducted through the implementation of several specialized instruments and testing equipment (i.e. biosensors, immunoblotters, syringes, petri dishes, heartbeat sensors and other devices).
The principle purpose behind POC is to conveniently and simultaneously test all aspect of the given task, in essence, speeding up the solution. This process will significantly raise the probability of the solution being an accurate one. Scientists and research/development teams will receive the results quicker, which allows for immediate technical management decisions to be made. Some aspects of point of care include: RT-qCPR analysis, MRI analysis, Glucose analysis, urinalysis, blood test, bacterial screening, pathogen screening, drug screening, chemical excretion screening, salivary assay, FSH-LSH testing and analysis, HPTA analysis, endocrine function analysis, and many other procedures.
Small bench analyzers or fixed equipment can also be used when a handheld device is not available--the goal is to collect the specimen and obtain the results in a very short period of time at, or near the location of the problem, so that the treatment plan can be adjusted as necessary before any other variables come into play. Cheaper, smaller, faster, and more advanced POC devices have increased the use of POC approaches by making it cost-effective for many diseases, such as malaria, rheumatoid arthritis and human immunodeficiency virus. Point of care is affected by several factors, here are some important ones:
- Proper POC instrument implementation according to circumstance.
- Usage of POC equipment that implements a high level of technology and practicality.
- Benefits that the POC equipment offers with proper use.
