Eye on Point-of-Care Diagnostics

Learn about the latest industry trends in this en bloc analysis of the POC research space.

Eye on Point-of-Care Diagnostics

Over 12,000 publications in the POC space from 110 countries were analyzed for this report. [© Anetta - Fotolia.com]

  • Our goal for this analysis was to understand the landscape of point-of-care (POC) diagnostics, and we believe that an excellent methodology to apply is to analyze the en bloc set of publications in this space.


    • The POC diagnostics field is a global growing space.
    • We have characterized the landscape via a bottom-up analysis of the entire publications ensemble.
    • Specific technologies such as segments of PCR are growing rapidly in this field—testifying to the central role nucleic acid analytes are occupying in POC.
    • There is small overlap with molecular diagnostics, suggesting that the POC field is an independent self-standing entity with significant growth potential.
