Point-of-care (POC) tests are diagnostic tests that are performed at or near the site where the patient is located. They are performed in decentralized settings, outside of central hospital laboratories or centralized reference laboratories. Growth in POC testing is being fueled by many factors including the growing number of people with diabetes, the globalization of infectious diseases and the associated public health issues, advances in therapies giving physicians more tools for treatment of patients if the doctor is able to rapidly diagnose the problem, the need to monitor an ever-growing group of people with chronic diseases such as cardiovascular diseases, arthritis, cancer and other chronic conditions, and many other factors.

Point of Care Testing (POCT) is attracting considerable investor and industry activity. This Kalorama Information report, The World Market for Point of Care Diagnostics, the result of primary and secondary research into the point of care diagnostics market, presents the most current analysis of the POC Diagnostics industry and the role it plays in medical practice. This report takes an in depth look at the market, technologies, and trends in decentralized testing, looking at both self-testing by patients (also referred to as the over-the-counter (OTC) market, and at point-of-care testing by healthcare professionals.

As part of this report's coverage, the following data is included:
- Molecular POC Test Products and the Future of Molecular POC
- Self-Testing Point of Care Test Market by Category, Worldwide (Glucose, Infectious Diseases, Critical Care, Cardiac Markers, Hematology, Coagulation, Fecal Occult Blood, HbA1c, Cholesterol/Lipids, Drugs of Abuse, Pregnancy/Ovulation, Other)
- Professional Point of Care Testing Market by Test Category, Worldwide, 2011 and 2016 (Glucose, Pregnancy/Ovulation, Fecal occult blood, Coagulation, Drugs of abuse, Cholesterol, HIV, Other)
- Regional Breakout of POC Market (US, EU, Japan, ROW)
- Blood Glucose Monitoring Markets
- Small Footprint and POC Chemistry Systems
- Small Footprint and POC Hematology Systems
- Small Footprint and POC Immunoassay Systems
- Non-Invasive Testing Innovations
