Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Microbial Testing Market 2015-2019

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the Global Microbial Testing Market: Beckman Coulter, Becton Dickinson, Biomerieux and Thermo Fisher Scientific

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: AEMTEK Laboratories, Vivione Biosciences, ALS life Sciences, SGS SA, and Pace Analytical Life Sciences.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “Early disease diagnosis would help control the rising prevalence of infectious diseases and associated costs. Governments worldwide are encouraging the use of diagnostic devices for early stage disease detections, rather than the use of antibiotics as a direct first-line treatment for infectious diseases. POC diagnostic devices are an integral part of early disease diagnosis. These devices accelerate the entire process of clinical decision making and deliver better patient care. POC diagnostic devices are simple to use and are cost-effective.”

According to the report, improvements in medical care led to the emergence of resistant microbes. For instance, increased intake of antibiotics can cause genetic alterations in microbes, making them resistant to antibiotics. This has shifted the focus toward the early diagnosis and control of diseases. Healthcare professionals are emphasizing on POC testing, as it is user-friendly. POC testing can provide accurate results in a limited TAT.

Further, the report states that high R&D cost and intense market competition are a growing concern for the leading vendors.
