Advance care delivery by bringing critical testing patient-side

Request more info

What could happen when critical testing results are securely delivered patient-side in less than 1 minute with a system that securely connects the entire care team?

With the epoc® Blood Analysis System as the nexus of care, caregivers and the laboratory can stay connected to what’s important—being where patients need them most. 

Patient diagnosis and treatment may happen faster. The hospital may make better use of resources. Patient safety may be enhanced with a simplified testing process and integrated positive patient ID. The streamlined testing workflow could help reduce costs. Outcomes could improve, and a complete, consistent clinical picture would be accessible across the care continuum.

    Healthcare providers spend more time with the patient to drive faster diagnosis and treatment decisions.

    How can enhanced safety and a simplified testing process provide confidence and peace of mind?

    The epoc system lets you be where patients need you most.

    The epoc system connects the entire team, so it doesn’t matter if the laboratory staff and caregivers work in different parts of the hospital. With the epoc system, they stand together to advance care delivery.

    Integrated Patient Safety

    Enhance patient safety with a secure, wireless connection to confirm real-time patient identification to mitigate data entry and transcription errors

    “The purpose of the 2017 National Patient Safety Goals is to improve patient safety. Two goals highlighted to address problems were to identify patients correctly and improve staff communication.” 

    The Joint Commission Accreditation Hospital

    Integrated Patient Safety

    With easy access to test cards available at the patient’s side spend less time on more complex workflows to get actionable results.

    Results can be available in less than 1 minute and accurately reflect patient’s immediate condition.

    “The immediate introduction at the bedside of a patient’s blood sample into an epoc test card minimizes preanalytical sample degradation.”

    Patient-side testing simplifies the process, eliminating sample transport and pre-analytical sample degradation to provide accurate results.

    The laboratory spends less time on complex inventory management optimizing time and resource utilization.

    What does a single room temperature stable test card with barcoded expiration deliver?

    The epoc system lets you be where patients need you most.



    Freedom to focus on where you bring the most value to patient care.
    Barcoded test cards automate quality assurance and a single room temperature stable test card streamlines inventory management.

    Empowered by Design

    Automated quality assurance eliminating the risk of running expired reagents further mitigating risk of diagnosis and treatment based on erroneous results.                                                                                                                                                                         

    “Each reagent for the epoc has direct bar coding, ensuring easy traceability.”

    Shweta Agarwal, MD, Baylor College of Medicine and Texas Children’s Hospital

    Empowered by Design

    Streamlined inventory management by doing away with the manual tracking of reagents once removed from refrigeration.

    “The epoc system uses a single test card with all the different analytes whereas a competitor system uses multiple test cartridges for the same results. Lastly, the smart card technology of epoc reduces cost and maximizes efficiency in the hospital setting.”
