Womens Health Diagnostic Testing --- Aarkstore Enterprise

Posted Nov 30 2010 12:29pm

The purpose of this report is to describe the specific segment of the in vitro diagnostics (IVDs) market called women’s health testing. This study includes contemporary and generally accepted clinical and analytical activities. This analysis examines clinical measurement devices, as well as their reagents and supplies, as utilized in hospitals, clinics and doctor’s offices. Some diagnostic tests, which are marketed primarily as over-the-counter products, are included in this report. This report also includes other important tests like mammography, (i.e., tests which are not generally associated with IVD tests, but which are an important component of the overall women’s health market). This study deals with analysis related to the common chemical constituents of blood, plasma or serum of concern to patient testing in the field of women’s health. Emphasis is on those companies and products that are actively developing and marketing clinical laboratory instrumentation, reagents and supplies for performing diagnostic tests related to women’s health. This study concentrates on the women’s health testing market segment in important worldwide markets such as the U.S., Japan and Europe.
