Follow us on LinkedIn Clinical diagnosis is both an expensive and time consuming process which involves obtaining samples, analyzing them to final reporting. Clinical diagnostic laboratories across the world are exploring ways to improve productivity with smaller budgets, against the backdrop of declining government reimbursement rates for laboratory testing, cost-cutting measures adopted by managed care organizations, and the general emphasis on reducing healthcare costs. Automation has therefore emerged as key towards achieving cost efficiencies and enhanced productivity. Automation in clinical laboratories involves replacement of manual, error-prone techniques with automated processes that involve minimal operator intervention. The need to improve workflow against a backdrop of increasing number of diagnostic tests being performed is additionally driving the business case for clinical automation.

Decline in the popularity of diagnostic medicine as a career, aging workforce, reduction in the number of medical technology training programs, and sub-standard wages for medical technologists are factors aggravating shortage of qualified laboratory technologists and driving labs towards automation. Increase in annual testing volumes due to aging global population, diagnostic and testing procedure innovations, and emerging challenges in the form of detection and identification of multidrug-resistant microorganisms are fueling demand for automation of clinical diagnostics in laboratories. Growing demand for high-quality healthcare and emphasis on reducing length of stay at hospitals are also raising demand for infectious disease assays with rapid turnaround times. Several clinical labs across the world have already incorporated automation in some form to achieve higher profits and provide better patient care.

While modular automation is likely to continue finding favor among labs, few large-scale labs will take up implementation of Total Laboratory Automation. With more and more labs adopting automation, demand is expected to increase for standardized interfaces that will allow systems of multiple manufacturers to be linked and operated without any compatibility issues. Increasing adoption of modular automation is also enhancing the significance of standardization in laboratory settings.

As stated by the new market research report on Clinical Diagnostics Automation, the United States represents the single largest market worldwide. The need to lower turnaround times and enhance laboratory efficiency in order to ensure timely delivery of diagnostic findings and an aging workforce represent factors driving growth in the country. Asia-Pacific is forecast to spearhead global growth with a CAGR of 8.6% over the analysis period. Expanding population, economic prosperity, increasing healthcare spending, and rising testing needs are fuelling adoption of laboratory automation systems in the region.

Major players covered in the report include Abaxis Inc., Abbott Diagnostics Inc., Beckman Coulter Inc., Becton Dickinson and Company, bioM

Nearly 70% of the respondents from the newest consumer research, which queries women from China, France, Germany, Japan, the United Kingdom, and the United States that own devices for aesthetic benefits, are either satisfied or very satisfied with these high-tech gadgets, according to the recently published Beauty Devices: Global Market Brief by worldwide consulting and research firm Kline & Company. Meanwhile, awareness is low with didnt know about them as the second most commonly given reason from those who have not yet tried an at-home beauty device.

Our research shows that women who use skin care devices have a high level of satisfaction. However, the penetration rates of these high-tech gadgets are low across most regions due to lack of awareness about them, indicating significant opportunity for marketers to attract new consumers, notes Karen Doskow, Director of Consumer Products at Kline.

Penetration rates of device usage are low across all surveyed countries except for China, which indexed well above the average at 60%. Usage was particularly low in Japan and the United Kingdom for cleansing devices, the leading beauty device used by those surveyed. Lack of knowledge about these products is among the key factors for limited use. The challenge for marketers of at-home skin care devices is to introduce and educate consumers to the merits of devices. Building greater awareness of device benefits and growing consumer confidence in the efficacy and value of devices is essential for market growth, suggests Doskow. Leveraging the satisfied customers and getting them to talk about devices within their social circles could be a key factor for success, she continues.

The high penetration rate in China solidifies the countrys status as a beauty mecca and hotbed of opportunity for marketers of beauty devices and topical skin care products alike. Global brands such as LOr
