Procurement Trends: Molecular Analyzers - December 2013
December 1, 2013 | Procurement Trends
Molecular diagnostic laboratory analyzers for the testing of infectious microorganisms have an increased foothold in the clinical laboratory. These instruments use nucleic acid diagnostic techniques to identify and/or quantify specific molecules belonging or related to different types of bacteria, viruses, and fungi that infect humans. The turnaround time for these tests is a matter of hours versus days or, in some cases, weeks using standard culturing methods.
