PTS PodTM Allows Health Providers and Screening Companies to Expand Testing Options & Increase Efficiency
“The PTS Pod system allows clinics and health and wellness companies to greatly expand the variety of tests available to their customers with a simple fingerstick while maintaining efficient throughput of screening participants,” said Robert Huffstodt, President and CEO of PTS Diagnostics. “For our customers across the globe, the PTS Pod system has many benefits over traditional Dried Blood Spot (DBS) equipment, including less than three minutes of dry time.”
CoreMedica Laboratories, LLC, which is CLIA-licensed and accredited by the College of American Pathologists (CAP), will perform the testing and report the results. CoreMedica reports a very low “quantity not sufficient” rate of less than one percent.
“Medical providers, retail walk-in clinics, health wellness providers, and screening companies will certainly find value in our newest product offering. The PTS Pod system provides significant cost savings over standard blood laboratory testing, especially when you consider extra expenses such as phlebotomists, supplies, and biohazard shipping and handling,” said Huffstodt.
The PTS Pod system is currently available with the following tests: serum nicotine/cotinine, prostate specific antigen (PSA), thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH), creatinine, high-sensitivity Creactive protein, testosterone, cortisol, lipid panel, glucose, and A1C. Future tests are in development.
PTS Diagnostics’ product lines also include handheld, highly-accurate, fast and economical diagnostic devices that empower the medical community to quickly measure HbA1c and glucose, and generate a lipid (cholesterol) profile, all at the point of care:
