The future of Point Of Care testing here today
The Professional Finecare Analyser is easy to use, requires no calibration & provides highly sensitive & specific laboratory standard results. It’s wide POC test menu provides rapid quantitative results at the Point Of Care enabling improved patient pathways, better patient care & financial savings.
Tests currently available:
CRP (C-reactive Protein)
Cardiac Markers (3-in-1)
AFP (Alpha Fetal Protein)
PSA (Prostate Specific Antigen)
Tests available soon:
Progesterone, Vitamin D, LH, FSH, S100β, ST2, LP-PLA, PAPP-A & FPSA
Easy to use
All tests run on the Finecare analyser use simple fingerstick blood or a small aliquot of venous blood. All tests use a simple & recognisable cassette design improving familiarity and therefore ease of use. In a recent General Practice study of the analyser in 94% of cases clinicians found the analyser to be fairly or very convenient to use. All test kits have a long shelf life & are stored at room temperature.
No calibration required
The Finecare analyser does not need any calibration, all calibration data for any individual test type is included in a code chip supplied with each new test kit. This enables easy & rapid use of the analyser and gives the analyser the ability to run new tests without the need for software updates.
Large test menu
Currently there are 17 different Finecare tests available, all of which run on the Finecare analyser. New products are planned for launch early in 2017. See product downloads for further information.
Laboratory standard results
In external evaluations the Finecare analyser has been shown to provide laboratory standard results ensuring users of the product at the point of care can confidently rely on results obtained from the Finecare tests. All tests include an on-board control ensuring the efficacy of the test. The 10,000 test memory, on board printer & interface ability remove the risk of administrative errors.
Virtually maintenance free
Simply keep it clean. All sample & any fluids are kept within the test cassette & therefore there is no requirement for fluidic pumps etc enabling the analyser to be virtually maintenance free.
Light & compact
The Finecare analyser has a small footprint & is lightweight rendering it suitable for hospital, GP clinics & for transport to care homes etc.
Powered by innovation
The Finecare Analyser has the widest range of tests available of any analyser of its type. The innovative test design allows the analyser menu to be easily expanded thus future proofing the product. The data chip, supplied with each test kit, allows the analyser to be used without the need for calibration & enables the user to run newly released tests without the need for software updates.
The Finecare test system uses many innovative designs including the innovative yet simple to use sampling device as used in the Finecare CRP test for sampling fingerstick blood.
Accurate Point of Care test for the determination of HbA1c
The Finecare HbA1c is a rapid in-vitro diagnostic test for the quantitative determination of HbA1c in human blood, the results of which can reflect the average blood glucose level 2-3 months prior to measurement.
Finecare cardiac tests for rapid diagnosis & risk stratification
Finecare Cardiac markers are used in the diagnosis & risk stratification of patients with chest pain (AMI), suspected acute coronary syndrome (ACS) & heart failure.
D-dimer – an essential test in the rule out of PE
Patients presenting with symptoms such as lung related chest pain, dyspnea, cough & dizziness need to be excluded from having Pulmonary Thromboembolism (PE) which has characteristics of high morbidity and mortality. It is the third most common cardiovascular disease after coronary heart disease and stroke. The Finecare D-dimer test provides a rapid result to aid in the rule out of PE at the point of care when a quantitative test result is required. It is also designed for bed side testing to monitor D-dimer levels in specific patient groups such as those with DIC (Disseminated Intravascular Coagulation).
