Take the Epoc Veterinary Portable Blood Gas Electrolyte and Critical Care Analyzer, a novel device that provides immediate results directly to a hand-held personal digital assistant (PDA) and connects wirelessly to the vet lab computer. It is the first wireless point-of-care testing solution to use Smart Card technology.
