International Pathology Day 2019
The theme of this year’s International Pathology Day (IPD) is ‘Advances in rapid and point-of-care diagnostic testing’.
If you’re attending the IPD one day conference at the Royal College of Pathologists in London on 13th November, keep an eye out for the JCP Editor-in-Chief Tahir Pillay giving a talk on new diagnostic probes for point-of-care diagnostic testing (POCT). If you can’t attend, you can keep up with the latest news by following the official hashtag #PathologyDay on social media.
To mark the occasion, we have made these papers on POCT published in Journal of Clinical Pathology free to read until the end of 2019.
- Frequencies and patterns of laboratory test requests from general practice: a service evaluation to inform point-of-care testing
- Generational performance of three point-of-care testing devices compared with standard laboratory measurement of the international normalised ratio across extended ranges
- Performance of point of care assays for hepatitis B and C viruses in chronic kidney disease patients
- Accuracy, user-friendliness and usefulness of the Cobas h232 point-of-care test for NT-proBNP in primary care
- C-reactive protein and neutrophil count laboratory test requests from primary care: what is the demand and would substitution by point-of-care technology be viable?
