The clinical diagnostic tests performed by laboratories can be broadly classified into four major categories, namely, clinical chemistry, medical microbiology & cytology, human and tumor genetics and other esoteric tests. Ranging from routine blood and urine tests to high-end genetic analysis including fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH), molecular expression testing, etc., clinical laboratories offer numerous tests that help detect disease progression and abnormalities. The three major types of service providers in this market include hospital-based laboratories, clinic-based laboratories and stand-alone laboratories. With the increasing incidence rates of debilitating conditions such as cancer, diabetes and infectious diseases, the number of patients that will opt for such tests will continue to increase in the future and thereby increase the demand for these services. Moreover, the percentage of aged population in the U.S. is expected to grow to an estimated 20% by 2030. Such a large population of elderly people in the U.S. alone will lead to high testing volumes for clinical laboratories. Diagnostics manufacturers such as Roche Holdings, Genomic Health, Abbott Diagnostics, Qiagen, etc. are focusing their efforts towards developing products and systems that would enable highly accurate analysis of patient samples and also enable processing of thousands of samples at a time. This will help clinical laboratories to cope with the rising demand and in turn ensure revenue generation.
