Biomarker Trends Are Auspicious for Pathologists and Clinical Laboratories

Few anatomical tools hold more potential to revolutionize the science of diagnostics than biomarkers, and pathologists and medical laboratories will be first in line to put these powerful tools to use helping patients with chronic diseases There’s good news for both anatomic pathology laboratories and medical laboratories worldwide. Large numbers of clinically-useful new biomarkers continue to be validated and are in development for use in diagnostic tests and therapeutic drugs. Clinical...

Home-testing IVD Diagnostic Devices Win Rigorous MDEA Design Awards as Part of Ongoing Trend to Move Medical Laboratory Tests Closer to Patient

Innovative designs promote in vitro home-testing medical diagnostic devices that could impact the work done in clinical laboratories With greater frequency, new diagnostic technologies make it possible to move medical laboratory tests out of the traditional central lab facility and closer to the patient—including patient home self-testing. Even as this happens, engineers and designers are delivering elegant, well-designed devices designed for use in clinical laboratories as well as in...
