Moreover, complications due to premature births result in fatal outcomes in approximately 1 million cases. One of the major causes of such complications is premature rupture of membranes (PROM), which accounts for roughly 30% of all preterm births.

Rise in Demand for Point-of-Care Testing Devices to Present Significant Opportunities

Increase in demand for effective and early diagnosis and reduction in false positive tests for diagnosis of premature births and PROM drive adoption of point-of-care testing devices. Moreover, high adoption of these devices can be attributed to reduced risk of misdiagnosis, ease of usage, and high sensitivity. Point-of-care testing devices have also assisted in reducing the chances of complications due to preterm births by enabling diagnosis at early stages and allowing health care providers to offer immediate care to mother and fetus at early stages of pregnancy.
