About Vitamin D deficiency and Test4D™:
Vitamin D deficiency is a common problem in
25-OH vitamin D levels are currently identified through laboratory testing. Over the past decade, there has been an incremental surge in the demand for vitamin D testing, resulting in an overload of testing requirements for laboratories as well as surging costs to both laboratories and the government. An alternative to laboratory testing is Point-of-Care-Testing (POCT), medical testing that occurs outside of a clinical laboratory and near the patient. Potential advantages of POCT include reduction in errors and cost to the healthcare system, and the provision of quick and accurate clinical diagnosis due to the availability of results.
To address the demands of vitamin D testing on laboratories and the government,
Test4D™ is available for commercial sale through certain distributors, or can be purchased for research purposes directly from NanoSpeed.
