A recent study on the use of EquiChek in differentiating infected joints from those that were inflamed but not infected.

A recent study has shown that the EquiChek SAA point‐of‐care test has proven highly specific and sensitive in differentiating infected joints from those that were inflamed but not infected. The study concluded that given results of cytological analysis can be delayed in an ambulatory setting, and that synovial bacterial culture has high false negative returns and can take 3–5 days, the EquiChek technology has potential to become extremely useful in aiding immediate septic synovitis diagnosis.
