BBC’s coverage of the Immunochemistry IVD market provides clients with a complete view of the clinical and financial trends within the laboratory testing marketplace. Our clinical segments of focus include, but are not limited to: allergy, anemia, autoimmune, blood processing (donor testing), cancer, cardiac, drugs of abuse, endocrine, infectious disease, metabolic, and therapeutic drug monitoring, as well as novel, emerging assays/biomarkers.
We track the competitive landscape, consisting of major global players such as Abbott, Beckman Coulter (a Danaher company), bioMerieux, Canon Medical Systems (formerly Toshiba Medical), DiaSorin, Fujirebio, Hitachi High-Technologies, Mindray, PerkinElmer, Ortho-Clinical Diagnostics, Quidel (formerly Alere BNP business), Roche, Siemens Healthineers (Siemens), SNIBE, Thermo Fisher, and Tosoh, among others.
Our reporting provides clients with the insight to develop, sell, and track the success of new and existing tests and equipment across all end-user segments, including hospitals, reference/commercial laboratories, and ambulatory settings.
BBC’s Clinical Chemistry definition includes all instrument, service, and reagent revenue associated with stand-alone Clinical Chemistry Laboratory Systems (CCLS) and the clinical chemistry component of integrated chemistry/immunoassay platforms or Work Cells. Reagent revenue also includes Homogeneous Immunoassay (HIA) methods, such as DAT, HbA1c, Proteins, and TDM, among others. Our analysis also includes monitoring system placements and installed base.
BBC’s Immunoassay definition includes all instrument, service, and reagent revenue associated with stand-alone Immunoassay Systems (IAS) and the immunoassay component of integrated chemistry/immunoassay platforms or Work Cells. Our analysis also includes monitoring system placements and installed base.
BBC has the flexibility to segment out the dedicated Blood Processing market (also known as the Donor Screening and/or Blood Bank market) due to segment’s unique operating environment and competitive landscape. Further, BBC excludes POC Immunoassay (e.g., Cardiac) from its immunoassay definition, which it treats as a dedicated segment within its POC market tracking.
Integrated Modular Solutions/Work Cell Systems
BBC’s Work Cell definition includes integrated chemistry/immunoassay platforms, such as the Alinity ci series (Abbott), ARCHITECT series (Abbott), UniCel DxCi series (Beckman Coulter), VITROS 5600 (Ortho-Clinical Diagnostics), cobas ce series (Roche), MODULAR series (Roche), Atellica Solution (Siemens), and Dimension series (Siemens), among others.
BBC covers laboratory automation solutions, which increase workflow efficiencies by controlling sample flow across a connected network of laboratory systems either through Total Laboratory Automation (TLA) or Task-Targeted Automation (TTA).
