Point-of-Care diagnostics

To prevent loss of time and distability of the sample during transport (e.g. blood gases), laboratory diagnostics at USZ are also performed directly at the bedside by non-laboratory staff of the clinics with the help of small dedicated devices. To ensure quality, this point-of-care testing (POCT) is coordinated by the POCT representative of the USZ, Ms Susanna Zürrer, susanna.zuerrer@usz.ch, +41 44 255 50 90. She is assisted by the POCT committee, whose members include representatives from the central clinical laboratories (including the IKC).
