The IVD Industry Today
The field of in vitro diagnostics is going through a period of rapid growth and innovation. Rising healthcare costs have led to a greater emphasis on evidence-based medicine and a focus on improved patient outcomes. An aging population along with the growing epidemic of chronic diseases and some infectious diseases are creating a demand for diagnostic devices for a variety of conditions. Development of these devices is challenging. Regulation of IVDs in the U.S. largely falls to the FDA, though other federal and state agencies play a role, and there are multiple development pathways to consider. And then commercialization strategies must evolve as IVDs become increasingly prescriptive. Harry Glorikian’s new book, Commercializing Novel IVDs: A Comprehensive Manual for Success, provides an overview of the major components to IVD development, from product conception through commercialization. –The Editor
