Point-of-care testing

Make testing more accessible to your community 

Point-of-care testing (POCT) gives you the opportunity to practice at the top of your license and raise your pharmacy’s profile as a go-to healthcare destination. POCT also enables you to: 

  • Attract existing patients and new customers to your pharmacy  
  • Build brand affinity/pharmacy loyalty for existing customers 
  • Drive revenue while improving patient health 
  • Increase your prescriptions and over-the-counter sales as you guide patients through their treatment 
  • Relieve the burden on the prescribers in your area, deepen your relationships, and boost referrals 
  • Position your pharmacy as a healthcare destination within your community

Test for COVID-19, flus A&B, and strep 

When your patients develop concerning symptoms in our current environment, the first thing they want to know is whether it’s COVID-19, the flu, or something else. The next thing they want to know is where they should go to get tested. The latest assay from BD Veritor™ offers simple functionality and rapid digital readout. This allows you to give your patients the answers they need fast.
