Diagnostics

Facing the economic and medical challenges of our health system, early and specific diagnostics gets more and more important. Particularly in the context of personalized medicine, diagnostics has played an essential role for several years.

While traditional laboratory diagnostic studies precede therapy and are even used optionally while monitoring, forecasts or predictions about the effectiveness of the therapy can be made by so-called companion diagnostics, in order to adjust those accordingly.

Another trend which has to be mentioned as an alternative to the central laboratory is Point of Care Testing (POCT). This provides additional technological requirements for equipment and procedures concerning miniaturization and integration as well as handling and reliability.


Focus:

  • Personalised medicine
  • Point of care testing (POCT)
