CRP analyser aids early decision making

New research indicates HORIBA Medical UK’s Microsemi point-of-care (POC) CRP analyser enables rapid clinical decision-making, saves time and reduces costs in emergency paediatric units.

The study found that using POC testing (combining CRP with full blood count) as a replacement for laboratory tests resulted in earlier decision-making in approximately 75% of cases across three hospital sites.

Economic analysis across these sites found that this could result in net annual cost savings, due to reduced staff time, as well as faster decisions on antibiotic use.
