Clinical laboratory testing is employed to diagnose the cause of an ailment and monitor disease prognosis. In the current scenario, diagnostic testing is performed under centralized laboratory conditions with sophisticated automated systems. Automation of diagnostic analysis enables handling  number of samples. In the developing world, there is an immediate need for making diagnostic testing accessible at the Point-of-Care (POC), so as to cater to the rural population. The POC devices possess important features like affordability, automation, miniaturization, cheaper cost per test, less result turnaround time, rapid diagnosis and no skilled personnel required.  Hence these features enable the testing capability at the primary care or community health care level.



The talk focuses on the development of POC testing devices for performing quantitative Biochemical analysis of blood.  test requires separation of serum from whole blood prior to the analysis. This process  is quite complex and time consuming thereby becoming  in achieving  diagnosis. To overcome the difficulties involved in serum separation from whole blood, we developed a novel method of separation that is simple to use and reduces the overall time and cost of diagnosis. This technique has been validated for the quantification of biochemical analytes present in whole blood. The limitations of this technique will also be discussed.
