In Vitro Diagnostics: The Quest for Growth

The global economic downturn has put pressure on large, consumer-based in vitro diagnostic markets, such as diabetes glucose-testing, driving down sales, pricing, and profits. As a result, the IVD industry is actively seeking out higher growth opportunities to offset this impact-and it is finding solutions in several areas, branching into underserved emerging markets like China and India and targeting higher-growth clinical segments such as cancer, women's health, and infectious disease. But perhaps the biggest opportunity for future growth lies in the field of molecular diagnostics, particularly products that address the move toward more personalized care. Suppliers well positioned to take advantage of this opportunity are likely to experience strong growth ahead.

Siemens--Stealing GE's Thunder

Siemens AG continues to assemble the pieces necessary to create a one-stop-shop for medical testing. With its $7 billion take-out of Dade Behring Holdings Inc., the German industrial giant ups the acquisition ante for in vitro diagnostic companies. Rival GE may have to play catch-up if it wants to maintain its leadership position in medical testing.
