INDIANAPOLIS, Aug. 17, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- PTS Diagnostics, the U.S.-based manufacturer of both the CardioChek® brand and the A1CNow® family of point-of-care diagnostic products, was ranked as one of the nation's fastest-growing private companies by Inc. magazine. The magazine's 34th annual "Inc. 5000 list" ranked PTS Diagnostics as the 2,684th fastest growing company in the United States.
Last year, PTS Diagnostics earned its place on the list with 80 percent growth over the previous three years. PTS Diagnostics continued to increase sales by earning 137 percent growth over the past three years in the 2015 list.

"We have also just expanded our portfolio of products to include the PTS Detect tobacco-detection system, the only point-of-care device the offers quantitative results from a fingerstick."
In addition, the company recently launched the PTS Pod collection system further innovating its line of point-of-care testing options. To complement its line of diagnostic devices, in early 2015 the company introduced PTS Diagnostics™ capillary tubes, and the PTS Connect™ wellness solution, an online information management and patient communication software tool.
