Abstract

Easy-to-use point-of-care (POC) tests provide rapid diagnostic results near the patient, enabling fast decision-making in patient management. However, the implementation of automated molecular diagnostic POC tests still faces technical challenges. We demonstrate a highly sensitive POC platform for automated molecular diagnostics of neonatal sepsis that uses a mobile analyzer and unit-use test carriers.
