EKF Diagnostics, a global diagnostics company, will be introducing its latest product developments and offerings at MEDICA 2022, Düsseldorf, Germany, 14-17 November. Highlighted at the event will be its newly introduced point-of-care testing (POCT) connectivity solutions, including the enhanced DiaSpect Tm hand-held hemoglobin analyzer and the new EKF Link digital connectivity software. In addition to its POCT products, EKF will also highlight its growing contract manufacturing services to the healthcare industry.
In Hall 3 at Stand B69, the EKF team will be available to demonstrate how its new state-of-the-art EKF Link middleware enables healthcare providers to readily manage their POC analyzers and all generated data via one centralized platform. An intuitive, open solution, EKF Link can be interfaced to most vendor’s POC analyzers, in addition to EKF’s own portfolio. This facilitates real-time remote management and secure transfer of data, including patient test results, QC results, operator management and analyzer configuration within a range of healthcare settings.
Adding to the ever-growing list of POC analyzers that are compatible with EKF Link, the enhanced DiaSpect Tm hemoglobin analyzer now offers calculated hematocrit values, and its rapid test results can be securely sent to centralized Laboratory Information Systems (LIS) or Patient Information Systems (PIS). The palm-sized analyzer’s new digital connectivity capabilities enabled by EKF Link also allows authorized users to easily access its near-patient results through a web browser, whatever their location, supporting seamless patient care.
EKF will also be highlighting its global contract manufacturing capabilities covering configuration of product, sourcing materials, providing state-of-the-art bulk formulation and dispensing facilities, through to services such as kitting, labelling and packaging. With extensive facilities in the USA, UK and Germany, EKF has a proven track record of developing and manufacturing quality products for a range of markets, industries, and businesses - from start-ups to industry leaders – across the globe.
MEDICA 2022 brings together industry leaders, global healthtech professionals, start-ups and experienced high-tech products in the medical technology arena.
Discussing how EKF’s contract manufacturing team has supported his start-up health technology company, Elliot Quigley, Project Manager, Proton Dx, said: “EKF Diagnostics has been instrumental in our development as a company. They worked above and beyond their remit to ensure the successful completion of our pivotal milestones. They worked closely with our team to provide solutions and guidance navigating the tricky start-up landscape, whilst providing top-tier products.”
Mike Salter, CEO, EKF Diagnostics, said: “We look forward to welcoming visitors to our stand at MEDICA where our team of product and contract manufacturing specialists will be on hand to discuss our broad range of medical diagnostics products and manufacturing services. We are particularly excited to be able to demonstrate our enhanced capabilities in POCT connectivity which provides hospitals, laboratories and clinicians with the ability to manage and evaluate their patient and user data easily and securely.”
