Emerging technologies for point-of-care genetic testing

Mark G Dobson, Paul Galvin, David E Barton
2007 Expert Review of Molecular Diagnostics  
In the coming years, genetic test results will be increasingly used as indicators that influence medical decision making. Novel instrumentation that is able to detect relevant mutations in a point-of-care setting is being developed to facilitate this increase, frequently as a spin-off from recent research in the area of biothreat monitoring. This market review will describe the current generation of instrumentation that is most suitable for use in a point-of-care setting; it will also try to
