An in-vitro diagnostic (IVD) device is defined as a device which is intended for the in-vitro examination of specimens derived from the human body principally to provide information for diagnostic, monitoring or compatibility purposes. These in-vitro diagnostic instruments can be used alone or in combination. In-vitro diagnostics involves tests performed on samples such as blood or tissue that have been collected from the human body. It helps to monitor a person’s overall health check up to help treat or prevent diseases. Devices can range from simple tests to sophisticated DNA technology including reagents, control materials, calibrators, and related instruments.
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is involved in regulation of IVD, since the introduction of the Medical Device Amendments of 1976. FDA classifies in-vitro diagnostic instruments into Class I, II, or III, according to level of regulatory control which is necessary to assure safety and effectiveness. The classification of an IVD determines appropriate premarket process. The Code of Federal Regulations lists the classification of existing in-vitro diagnostic instruments in 21 CFR 862, 21 CFR 864, and 21 CFR 866.
Global In-vitro Diagnostic Instruments Market Dynamics:
Increasing personalized healthcare approach and the ease offered by in-vitro diagnostic techniques and devices such as faster detection of asymptomatic infections and diseases and easy patient management at times when clinical presentation is non-specific is driving growth of the global market. In addition, rising adoption of point of-care testing among healthcare professionals as well homecare settings is another factor fueling growth of the target market. Furthermore, the growth of global market is fueled by technological advancements, improved patient monitoring and diagnostic tools, and increased availability of over-the-counter tests. In-vitro diagnostic instruments help to add noteworthy value to diagnosis and prognosis of diseases, thus enhancing well-being of general population.
Report Coverage and Deliverables
In-vitro diagnostics are different from other medical technologies available in the market in many ways, but the most significant difference is that it never comes in direct contact with the patient as they provide information based on analysis of samples.
However, stringent government regulations and lack of reimbursement policies in developing economies is a major factor expected to hamper growth of the global market.
