The art and science of in-vitro diagnosis (diagnosis outside the body) has changed considerably. Newer techniques and technologies are being introduced at frequent intervals. Gone are the days when technologists used to prepare their own testing kits in their laboratories. Now, every conceivable reagent and kit is available commercially. In fact, most sophisticated tests can nowadays be conducted at the patient’s bedside too. It is called point-of-care testing.
