NEW YORK, March 25, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportlinker.com announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue:
The Market and Potential for Molecular Point of Care Diagnostics
The molecular diagnostic market and the point-of-care (POC) testing markets are two of the fastest growing segments of the overall IVD market. Historically, these have been completely different market segments. Not anymore. There has been a growing interest in developing molecular diagnostic platforms that can be used in POC settings. Indeed, as this new market research report from Kalorama Information details, the emerging area of rapid molecular POC testing has attracted over $650 million in investments and financings over the past five years (2009 to 2013).
This report, The Market and Potential for Molecular Point of Care Diagnostics, offers a quantitative assessment of the molecular diagnostic market, and of the point-of-care (POC) testing market, and then looks at the emerging field of molecular diagnostic POC testing. Many companies are developing molecular diagnostic platforms and assays that are designed to for near-patient or POC testing, and the earliest of these systems are starting to reach the market. The initial market focus for most of these companies is on infectious disease testing, where rapid test results generate important actionable information that physicians can use to make treatment decisions.
Superior Data For Business Planning
As part of this coverage, the report provides:
• Profiles of Molecular POC Companies and Products
• Market Estimates for Molecular Diagnostics and POC Diagnostics 2013-2018
• Investments and Financing Agreements for POC Molecular
• Infectious Disease Diagnostics Opportunities
• Agreements Between with Other Diagnostic Companies
• Acquisitions of Molecular Diagnostic Near-Patient/Point-of-Care Companies
• Investor Spending in Molecular POC
• Deals Made Recently in Point of Care
• Profiles of Key Companies in the Market
Advances in molecular diagnostic technologies, combined with advances in microfluidics and other instrumentation technologies, are making it possible to develop new platforms and tests that meet the needs of a true POC system. Platforms for molecular diagnostic POC testing need to be small, portable, potentially hand-held, easy-to-use, and inexpensive. They need to be fully automated from sample to answer, so that they can be used by individuals who are not highly trained in molecular diagnostics or in laboratory testing in general.
Detailed Lists of Companies, Products, Recent Deals
Market analyses in this report cover world markets for molecular diagnostic point of care tests. However, the reader will find a bias toward the developed areas of the globe -- North America, Japan and Western Europe. Yet, it is important to remember that health and infectious disease are a growing global problem. Molecular diagnostic point-of-care tests represent an important aspect of bringing healthcare limited resource settings, and some sections of this report specifically focus on these activities. Market data in this report are based on factory sales to the end user, and not on retail pricing or reimbursement payments.
The information presented in this report is derived from publicly available information sources such as company reports and announcements, government reports and databases, medical organization reports, medical associations, and other publications. The analysis is based on the author's industry knowledge combined with literature searches and discussions with industry professionals and experts in the areas of point-of-care tests, decentralized healthcare and healthcare economics.
Over 75 companies involved in this market are profiled in this report. As expected with any group of start-up companies, many are struggling or are surviving on limited financial resources. However, some new companies that are focusing on molecular diagnostic POC testing have received significant investments.

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.

All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs. This is where the concept of the Lean Cloud comes in - resting on the idea that you often need to relocate your app modules over their life cycles for both innovation and operational efficiency in the cloud. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at19th Cloud Expo, Valentin (Val) Bercovici, CTO of Soli...

Enterprise IT has been in the era of Hybrid Cloud for some time now. But it seems most conversations about Hybrid are focused on integrating AWS, Microsoft Azure, or Google ECM into existing on-premises systems. Where is all the Private Cloud? What do technology providers need to do to make their offerings more compelling? How should enterprise IT executives and buyers define their focus, needs, and roadmap, and communicate that clearly to the providers?

IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.). The explosive proliferation of IoT solutions will result in an exponential growth in the volume of IoT data, precipitating significant Information Governance issues: who owns the IoT data, what are the rights/duties of IoT solutions adopters towards t...
