CHEK Diagnostics Key Developments

PTS Diagnostics Launches PTS Detect Cotinine System

PTS Diagnostics announced that the company has launched a new product line of handheld medical devices that provide rapid point-of-care test results previously only available from a venous draw sent to a laboratory. PTS Detect™ systems will allow healthcare professionals to further expand the number of fingerstick tests with results provided at the point of care. The first product in this new family innovates tobacco-use detection. The PTS Detect cotinine system is the only point-of-care device offering quantitative results from a fingerstick. The PTS Detect cotinine system is a portable device offering specific, reliable, accurate and fast results. The PTS Detect system measures quantified cotinine (a byproduct of nicotine) levels from 25 ng/ml to 200 ng/ml in just 5 minutes. In recent evaluations, the portable PTS Detect system provided results with similar sensitivity and specificity ranges as laboratory instruments. Another benefit is the cost savings that can be realized with the PTS Detect cotinine system. As a fingerstick test, the expense of employing phlebotomists is eliminated. With no shipping of specimens to the laboratory and fewer confirmatory tests, the PTS Detect cotinine system is well-positioned for the workplace. Further, the fingerstick collection can be done in conjunction with other onsite screenings.
