MHRA recommends use of accredited point of care testing
Management and use of IVD point of care test devices
The Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) states that Any site providing a POCT service should undergo accreditation. Accreditation is assessment, by an external body, of the competence to provide a service to a recognised standard. By having this independently confirmed, POCT providers are able to give reassurance to users of their service.
