Clin Biochem Rev. 2011 May;32(2):109-14.


This paper reviews the current status of point-of-care testing (PoCT) devices that are available for measuring whole blood or serum/plasma creatinine globally and within Australasia. Information on non-analytical specifications and analytical performance is provided using data sourced from recently published literature, external quality assurance programs and evaluative work by the author's unit. The limitations of current devices are summarised.
