Hubs install POCT analysers

Thame and Marlow Community Hubs, within Buckinghamshire Healthcare NHS Trust, have each recently installed HORIBA Medical’s latest point-of-care testing analyser, the Microsemi CRP.

These new analysers streamline existing diagnostic pathways in the community and help to reduce local A&E admissions for frail patients.

The Microsemi CRP is a compact and user-friendly “near-patient” analyser, which delivers a lab-accurate, three-part differential full blood count combined with a CRP measurement of a single tiny 18μL whole sample within four minutes. 

Information gathered from the analyser is of great value in determining the presence of bacterial infection and inflammation.
