Siemens' Chief Scientific Officer IDs Five Key IVD Trends

James Donnelly, chief scientific officer at Siemens Healthcare, delivered a keynote address at the MD&M East conference in Philadelphia last week in which he highlighted five key trends in diagnostics. Pamela L. Moore, senior vice president, content and strategy, at UBM Connect attended and summarised his speech on the Medtech Pulse blog.

Donnelly cited bifurcation of testing as one of the trends reshaping the industry. Traditional labs are getting bigger at the same time as point-of-care is experiencing rapid growth, reports Moore.

The other trends to watch are the rise of robotics, demand for faster test results, the increasing use of biomarkers, and, not surprisingly, pervasive connectivity, according to Donnelly.
