U.S. glucose testing is undergoing a significant transition, driven by new analytical technologies and developments in diabetes treatment. Although the blood glucose testing segment of the in vitro diagnostics (IVD) industry is mature, several segments of the market, such as home testing devices for diabetes management and point of care (POC) instruments for use in professional settings, will exhibit strong growth. Direct access testing has emerged as a strong force in the blood glucose testing segment, and non-invasive and minimally-invasive testing now represent major new areas for the application of IVD testing. This TriMark Publications report describes the specific market segments for blood glucose testing and diabetes management in the U.S. market. It reviews all of the generally-accepted clinical analytical methods that are currently in use today for measuring serum, plasma or whole-blood glucose concentrations. Additionally, this study examines clinical measurement devices, reagents and supplies as utilized in hospitals, clinics, doctor’s offices and at-home care locations. Moreover, it analyzes almost all of the companies known to be marketing, manufacturing or developing glucose testing products for the U.S. market. Each company is discussed in extensive depth with a section on its history, product line, business and marketing analysis, and a subjective commentary of the company’s market position. Detailed tables and charts with sales forecasts and market data are also included.
