Clinical microbiology plays an important role in an individual’s health and helps to manage infectious disease outbreak by identifying pathogens having potential to infect people. Hospital microbiology testing is a part of clinical laboratory testing involved in conducting multiple tests and blood collections in hospitals. It enables adequate management of threats of infectious diseases. Timeliness of diagnosis, appropriateness of treatment, advances in infectious disease practices and training of future practitioners are some of the factors driving the global hospital microbiology testing market.
The market is also segmented based on the diagnostic technologies used in global hospital microbiology testing market. The diagnostic technologies include molecular diagnostics, monoclonal antibodies, immunoassays, differential light scattering, liposome, flow cytometry, chromatography, gel microdroplets and others. Geographically, the global hospital microbiology testing market is segmented into four major regions namely, North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific and Rest of the World.
In addition, reductions in reimbursement provided by governmental healthcare providers have led most of the hospitals and medical centers to undertake enhancement of their microbiological laboratory capabilities. It has also been suggested that hospital based microbiology laboratories should be offered easily obtainable annual grants depending on the hospital size and criticality of care.
With growing attention focused on increase in infectious diseases and improved quality of healthcare outcomes, it appears that managing of infectious disease can be best accomplished by maintaining microbiological testing laboratories on the same site i.e. in hospitals to promote good patient care outcomes and also to save money. Thus the goal of hospital microbiology testing includes achievement of excellence in patient care, affordable diagnosis and treatment and high quality outcome. Some of the key players contributing to the microbiology testing market include Abbott Diagnostics, Affymetrix, bioMerieux, Cepheid, Hologic, Ortho-Clinical Diagnostics, Qiagen, Roche Diagnostics, Siemens and Thermo Fischer Scientific.
