Diagnostics play a pivotal role across the entire healthcare continuum from screening, detection and prognosis to patient stratification and condition monitoring.

Driving the need for innovation are growing and ageing populations, the increasing prevalence of non-communicable diseases and chronic conditions, workforce shortages and an increasingly knowledgeable and empowered consumer base. However, innovative companies struggle to get their products to market due to a series of challenges, and as a result, diagnostics testing is taking much longer, causing backlogs in healthcare systems.
