New Frost & Sullivan Report Estimates Global Sales of Tissue Diagnostics Products to Reach $3.5 Billion by 2017

Medical laboratories could benefit by fewer customers for U.S tissue diagnostics products Even as anatomic pathology laboratories in the United States see a decline in reimbursement for many pathology testing services, the demand for tissue diagnostics products will continue to be robust in coming years. There are at least three reasons why this will be true. Research analysts at Frost & Sullivan predict that global sales of tissue diagnostics products will grow from $2.4 billion in 2012...

Meet the Clinical Pathology Laboratory on the Palm of a Hand: Japanese Researchers Announce a Point-of-Care Testing Device That Detects MicroRNA in 20 Minutes

Second-generation device is self-powered, does not require a trained operator, and amplifies the fluorescence signal by 1,000-fold, enabling early detection of cancer Pathologists will be interested to learn that Japanese researchers have developed a second-generation lab-on-a-chip that detects microRNA (miRNA) from a tiny sample volume in only 20 minutes! Their goal is to create a point-of-care device for early detection of cancer. This is another example of how a variety of fast-developing...
