How to get listed as a POC Vendor

I am a Point of Care Testing vendor.  Can I participate in

Yes.  There are no requirements other than CLIA approval in the United States for a product which can be used at the point of care or in near patient testing.  If you market an instrument, it must have 510k clearance from the FDA.

How much does it cost?

Nothing.  Vendor listings are free as a service to the Point of Care community.

My vendor page has incorrect or outdated information.  How do I correct this?
