Retail Clinics Solidify Niche Role in Healthcare, Continue Success Through Unique Proposition to Patients

Kalorama Information has closely monitored the development of the U.S. retail clinic industry as an emergent channel for therapeutics and diagnostics, but also as a vehicle for healthcare services that is uniquely responsive to shifts in the U.S. healthcare system. Retail Clinics 2015 bases its findings on an expansive consumer survey as well as Kalorama’s research into point of care testing (POCT) and medical device markets.

NIAID Grants Highlight Innovations in HAI and AST Testing

Will Capillary Electrophoresis Move to the Front of the Line in Top-Down Proteomics?

The steadily evolving field of discovery proteomics can be divided roughly between “bottom-up” and “top-down” approaches to the screening and analysis of sample proteomes. The bottom-up shotgun approach has powered over a decade of extensive research in proteome mapping and protein discovery for biomarker and drug development. However, bottom-up approaches do not lend themselves well to the differentiation and discovery of proteoforms, or the different in vivo forms the same protein sequence can take including the fixation of post-translational modifications (PTMs).

Next-Generation Sequencing Stays Ahead of the Market Curve

The impact of genetic sequencing on life sciences research, biotechnology and medicine is unprecedented. In 25 years, genomic knowledge has been built on a staggering scale: first enabled with the innovation and commercialization of Sanger sequencing, pieced together in coordinated efforts between various institutes, and then tremendously accelerated with the introduction of higher-throughput next-generation sequencing (NGS) technologies.

Healthcare Reform Has Impact in Glucose Testing

Among the industries impacted by healthcare reform, we've predicted in our report on the ACA that IVD would fair better than pharma or non-testing medical devices.  Testing is by its nature preventative, and the theory was that more office visits from newly insured patients should lead to more.
