Hospital-based Point of Care Diagnostics: Products, Players and Outlook to 2017

NEW YORK, Dec. 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportlinker.com announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue:

Hospital-based Point of Care Diagnostics: Products, Players and Outlook to 2017

http://www.reportlinker.com/p01054644/Hospital-based-Point-of-Care-Diagnostics-Products-Players-and-Outlook-to-2017 .html#utm_source=prnewswire&utm_medium=pr&utm_campaign=In_Vitro_Diagnostic

Clinical and patient benefits are driving the Hospital-based Point-of-Care product sector, which achieved growth of 7.5% in 2011

US$2.9 billion

The benefits are clear. Hospital-based POC diagnostics offer healthcare providers an opportunity to improve the quality of patient care while saving time and reducing costs. A faster diagnosis can mean a faster medical intervention, potentially avoiding the need to admit a patient into hospital and the costs incurred as a result, while also freeing up that hospital bed.

The integration of IT connectivity and data management features enables POC analysers to communicate with hospital IT systems and electronic patient records in order to increase efficiency, facilitate quality control and reduce the chance of user error.

The development of new technologies that enable DNA analysis and the identification of hospital-acquired infections such as MRSA at the point of care.

The patient experience is improved with shorter waiting times and hospital stays, and lower rates of hospital-acquired infections.

Automated calibration, processing and operation features eliminate the need for medical staff to add reagents or undertake manual handling steps as errors in these areas can impact patient safety and the accuracy of POC test results.

Challenges remain...

This new November 2012 report delivers a complete analysis

This new 182-page highly-detailed report Hospital-based Point-of-Care Diagnostics: Products, Players and Outlook to 2017 provides executives with a complete understanding of the issues which are shaping the market and how that will affect its commercial development. This is Volume 2 of a 4-Volume study of the whole POC IVD sector to be published late 2012/early 2013. See overleaf for more details and discounts.

Focus on...

The Competitive Environment

There are around 80 companies active in the hospital POC diagnostics market, although many are development-stage or have limited product portfolios. The market is currently dominated by Alere (previously Inverness Medical Innovations), Abbott, Radiometer, Roche and Siemens. Currently, Abbott, Radiometer, Roche and Siemens have strong positions in the markets for clinical chemistry and blood gas analysis; Abbott, Alere and Roche are leaders for POC cardiac marker testing; and Beckman Coulter, Quest Diagnostics, Horiba and Sysmex are key companies in POC haematology diagnostics.
