|Liver Diseases Healthy Cirrhosis, Liver Fibrosis||Device: Group K Diagnostic point of care device|
Outpatient diagnostics are slow and expensive due to turnaround times, complex workflows and high cost. Sometimes patients do not make it to laboratory testing if a lab is not available on site. Delays in testing can affect medical outcomes or patients can be lost to follow up.
Group K developed a paper microfluidic platform with an accompanying mobile application(app). The paper microfluidic device is a simple, inexpensive wax backed device with three testing areas. These areas have a mix of dried proprietary reagents that when combined with a patients drop of blood, or in the future, saliva or urine, will produce results in a color change. An app is then used to interpret the color change and output results to a doctor. The target population is adults who have an indication to collect a liver function panel that will be drawn on the same day as their clinic visit or during their inpatient hospital
|Study Type :||Observational|
|Estimated Enrollment :||300 participants|
|Official Title:||Biomedical Device Trial of Validation of Point of Care Liver Function Tests|
|Actual Study Start Date :||December 3, 2018|
|Estimated Primary Completion Date :||November 3, 2019|
|Estimated Study Completion Date :||December 3, 2019|
A finger stick sample is collected and tested on the study device.
Device: Group K Diagnostic point of care device
Arm 1 will have a finger prick sample collected to test the ability of Group K Diagnostic point of care device and app to identify liver function values.
- Regression curve and correlation coefficient [ Time Frame: 1 year ]Each data point will represent one observation or one test run. The investigators will use regression methods to determine the linear relationship between standard lab results and Group K diagnostic's device.
- The consistent accuracy of the diagnostic device [ Time Frame: 1 year ]Lowest level frequency of detection must be detected 90% of the time. This will become the functional lower limit. The same with the highest level of frequency.
