Benefits of Point-of-care Testing Spurs Adoption of Urinalysis
Point-of-care testing (POCT) technologies have played a vital role in the transformation of the healthcare industry. When implemented accurately, point-of-care testing can have a positive impact on patient care as well as operational efficiency. "With a rising focus on providing cost-effective and timely medical care for ambulatory patients, POC laboratory testing has become one of the fastest growing areas in the medical field," the author of the study notes. The benefits of point-of-care testing are also reflected in urinalysis, wherein the segment is poised to witness strong growth in the coming years.
The rise in geriatric population, rapid advancement in medical technology, and the rising incidence of diabetes and renal diseases also contribute to the global urinalysis market.
In contrast, the high cost associated with advanced analyzers and the shortage of laboratory staff acts as impediments to the growth of the urinalysis market.
