(PRWEB) February 19, 2013
Clinical laboratory analysis for in vitro diagnostic (IVD) testing is one of the most important sectors of medical care. By all accounts, it is very mature, large market employing over 100,000 laboratory workers, and spawning an industry for reagents and instruments comprised of thousands of companies worldwide. The term clinical laboratory analysis usually refers to determining the concentration or activity of a protein, carbohydrate, lipid, electrolyte, enzyme or small molecule in easily collected body fluids such as blood, serum, plasma or urine. However, it is not necessarily limited to these determinations.
The purpose of this TriMark Publications report is to describe the specific segments of the global clinical laboratory instrumentation and reagent market. Within this area, the report covers those segments that are highly active in terms of innovation and growth. Specifically, this global clinical laboratory markets report examines the markets for small lab equipment all the way up to highly-automated, large lab platforms, as well as accessory equipment such as reagents, supplies and manufacturers' original equipment manufacturer (OEM) additional equipment. The emphasis in this analysis is on those companies and products that are actively developing and marketing laboratory analyzer products for the clinical setting, including hospitals, independent labs, physician's offices and miscellaneous clinics.
This study concentrates on the clinical laboratory instrumentation industry market segment and the companion reagents sector in the U.S. and around the world. The regional markets and their differences are examined, including Europe, Asia (Japan, China and India) and the rest of the world (ROW). Particular attention is paid to those areas of the clinical laboratory instrumentation and reagents sector that are showing the greatest growth or the most innovation.
Companies mentioned include: Abaxis, Abbott, Hitachi, Nova Biomedical, Hologic, Inc., Shimadzu, Sysmex Corporation, Vital Scientific, NV,Tosoh Corporation and many more
