What is a Point-of-Care Test (POCT) and what is it used for?

A POCT is a test that is performed outside of a laboratory at the point-of-care, with the donor, to screen for the presence of a specific substance. In the case of drug testing, a POCT device is used to perform an initial screening of urine and oral fluid specimens for the presence of drugs. On-site testing devices can test single or multiple drugs simultaneously and are available in a number of different configurations.
