Our Technology

When you self test at home with Real-Time Diagnostics, you'll use the same PT/INR testing technology used in many doctor's offices and anticoagulation clinics. These high-tech devices are easy-to-use and highly accurate — up to a 97% correlation between results obtained through self testing at home and results obtained at a lab or at the doctor's office. We'll provide you with your own handheld monitor (at no cost to you) and teach you how to use it!
