The MyCare Insite Analyser: Valuable Point of Care Testing for Today’s Psychiatry

MyCare Insite offers greater confidence to clinicians by providing objective data about patient’s medication, adherence, and efficacy. The Insite measures the blood levels of the most common antipsychotic drugs. Similar to a blood glucose test, the Insite requires only a drop of blood taken by finger stick and generates results in approximately 7 minutes. Conducting the test requires minimal testing.

Antipsychotics

Ensure outstanding levels of performance with Saladax’s MyCare Psychiatry Line

Antipsychotic drugs are used to treat serious mental illness and are frequently monitored. The MyCare Psychiatry line offers the only commercially available assays to measure the most widely prescribed antipsychotics. TDM of antipsychotic drugs is a powerful tool that tailors treatment to the specific needs of individual patients. It can help with monitoring adherence, dose adjustment, reducing relapse, minimizing the risk of toxicity, and cost-effectiveness in the treatment of psychiatric disorders.

Advantages of MyCare Psychiatry Assays:

• Applications available on major analysers
• Reagents run on clinical chemistry analysers with open channels
• Optimized for long shelf life and lot-to-lot consistency
• Rapid turnaround

• No reagent preparation
• No sample pre-treatment
• Assay performance validated according to FDA and IVDD standards

Indications for TDM

• Dose optimization after initial prescription or after dose change
• Drugs for which TDM is mandatory for safety reasons (e. g., lithium)
• Suspected complete or partial non-adherence (noncompliance) to medication
• Lack of clinical improvement under recommended doses
• Adverse effects alongside clinical improvement under recommended doses

• Combination treatment with a drug known for its interaction potential or suspected drug interaction
• TDM in pharmacovigilance programs
• Relapse under adequate doses
• Elderly patient ( > 65 y)
• Patients with pharmacokinetically relevantcomorbidities (hepatic or renal insufficiency, cardiovascular disease)
• Forensic patient
