ArcDia International Ltd has announced the expansion of its distributor and service network to cover 18 countries in Europe and Middle-East, twelve of which have been signed during the last four months.
mariPOC® is a rapid point-of-care diagnostic test to detect nine pathogens from one nasal swap sample in 20 minutes. mariPOC® respi test is designed for testing upper and lower respiratory tract infections. The test system allows rapid detection and differentiation between viral and bacterial infections.
“We started to work with mariPOC® already in early 2012. The mariPOC® diagnostics platform provides performance, cost-efficiency and usability needed in clinics. Fast results enable better patient care”, says Mr. Ferran Prat, Director of Diagnostic unit at Laboratories LETI, distributor of mariPOC® in Spain and Portugal.
“mariPOC® immunodiagnostics performs in practice better than molecular diagnostics that can be too costly and complex to use. Market response has been extremely good, and doctors, nurses and patients like the test better than taking multiple samples or waiting for one or two days for the results”, says Jesper Floyd Kristiansen, VP Sales and Marketing at ArcDia Ltd.
