Companion Animal Diagnostics Market Maintains Course

Companion Animal Diagnostics Market Maintains Course

Metrics used to construct the market projections of The World Market for Veterinary Diagnostics indicate the continuation of several previously observed market trends for companion animal diagnostics through the last half of 2014 and into 2015. While positive indicators abounded in past years across companion animal diagnostic product segments, some have fallen in performance recently. Opportunities to capture strong market growth remain available in companion animal diagnostics, though the over...

Competition Mounts in Physician and Ambulatory EMR Segments

Competition Mounts in Physician and Ambulatory EMR Segments

According to Kalorama Information’s Electronic Medical Records 2015 , medium-sized physician practices represent the most frequently targeted client group of electronic medical record (EMR) vendors. Over 50 EMR vendors offer EMR solutions to practices of roughly 6 to 25 physicians, significantly more than the roughly 30 vendors for any given segment of the acute care market. More vendors are now also offering specialized EMR solutions for ambulatory care areas such as family practice, pediatrics...


Carrier, Prenatal and Pediatric Genetic Testing Still a Big Draw for Investors and Labs

Carrier, Prenatal and Pediatric Genetic Testing Still a Big Draw for Investors and Labs

Genetic testing for inherited diseases has been a volatile industry space in recent years headlined by Myriad Genetics’ hold over BRCA testing and the subsequent opening of that market to competition with a 2013 Supreme Court ruling. Outside of testing for patient testing for oncology risk, a significant component of genetic testing is reproductive health-oriented testing for carrier genes and prenatal conditions. Atop the high-growth market for non-invasive prenatal testing (NIPT) are Sequenom ...

Cartagenia Acquisition Demonstrates Need For Better LIS

Cartagenia Acquisition Demonstrates Need For Better LIS

Last year we suggested that a key driver of lab information systems was software upgrades due to genomic testing. The kind of analysis being conducted for clinical applications will require software that many players don’t have. Our report on( http://www.kaloramainformation.com/Laboratory-Information-Systems-7796512/.) Laboratory Information Systems suggested key companies in diagnostics would have to make partnerships and acquisitions. Now this is happening. Such a trend is evident in a recent ...


The New Workhorses in Proteomics Research - Q-TOFs and Orbitraps

The New Workhorses in Proteomics Research - Q-TOFs and Orbitraps

Changes in the competitive and technological landscape of proteomics research can take a long time to take hold. Core instruments in translational research for biomarkers and drug targets, such as mass spectrometers (MS), may be replaced or upgraded in a laboratory only once every ten to fifteen years. Many proteomics core labs at universities and research centers still rely on manufacturer-discontinued MS systems, though reinforcements in the lab have been conspicuous in recent years. New MS te...
