Digital urine testing proves ‘cleaner, faster and more accurate’ in GP trials
Clinical Design launched our revolutionary Urine Testing System™ at Arab Health in Dubai January 2019.
Arab Health is the international hub for modern healthcare and innovation in the Middle East and beyond. It proved an ideal opportunity for our senior leadership team to meet potential distributors from all territories who recognise the opportunity that this digital innovation will bring to their market and portfolio.
We were also invited to present the Urine Testing System™ at the Innov8 Talks during the event.
Urine Testing System™ is the world’s only closed system for digital point-of-care urine testing. Hygienic, easy-to-use and accurate, it has been designed to improve the entire process from receiving the sample and recording results, to analysis in the laboratory.
Point-of-care testing is an ever-increasing area of healthcare for doctors and healthcare professionals globally. Globally, it is estimated that 2.8 billion point-of-care urine tests are carried out to diagnose acute infections and monitor kidney and liver disease, as well as diabetes.
The current test takes up to two minutes and risks include spillage of a contaminated sample, as well as human errors during analysis and/or the manual recording into a patient’s records.
Oliver Blackwell, CEO of Clinical Design, said: “We have developed a simple, integrated system that increases the efficacy and reliability of patient point-of-care urine testing and improves first-time diagnosis. It is the only closed urine testing system available anywhere in the world and we are delighted to be able to showcase it at Arab Health 2019.”
The launch was widely covered in international media, including a lead feature in Clinical Services Journal.
