Share your opinions with us regarding what qualities are needed to make POC tests for STDs that are efficient, effective, meaningful, and can influence public health positively.
The JHU Center for Point-of-Care Tests for Sexually Transmitted Diseases invites healthcare providers to tell us which qualities are most important in point-of-care diagnostic tests for STDs. We want you to share your opinions with us regarding what clinicians and others offering STD testing need, want, and will use for quick and efficient STD diagnosis.
We intend to ultimately inform test developers by sharing information about what those on the frontline of STD diagnosis and treatment identify as crucial barriers and requirements for usable point-of-care tests.
We ask you to complete the online survey by going to the link below and taking 15 minutes to answer some questions and then "build your own" STD point-of-care test.
The JHU Center for Point-of-Care Tests for Sexually Transmitted Diseases invites
• Manufacturers of POC diagnostic tests
• Researchers creating new point-of-care platforms and devices
• Scientific, Technical and Marketing representatives from the biotechnology community
to tell us about which qualities you think are most important to healthcare providers who use point-of-care tests to diagnose sexually transmitted infections.
The link below is to an online survey that will help us gain insight about industry's perceptions towards POC diagnostic tests for STDs used by healthcare providers, by telling us what you think is most important to them when designing and manufacturing POC tests.
Thank you in advance for the opportunity to collect information that will help us identify the direction for the development of new point-of-care tests for STDs.
