The highs and lows of turbidimetry: assessing its suitability for Point of Care immunoassays

03 July, 2019

Turbidimetry is an attractive option for point of care immunoassay diagnostic devices because of its simplicity, high-sensitivity and fast turn-around times. However, as the breadth of diagnostics available at Point of Care (PoC) increases and the demand that they should emulate the sensitivity and accuracy of central lab results remains, so immuno-turbidimetry may reach its limits.

In this article, Nick Collier, CTO Sagentia-Medical, assesses those limits and suggests how they might be addressed.
