Global Rapid Medical Diagnostic Kits Market - Applications and Technologies

Sep 22, 2015, 15:50 ET from Reportlinker

NEW YORK, Sept. 22, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- The global market for Rapid Medical Diagnostic Kits (MDKs) has been witnessing steady, albeit not rapidly accelerated, growth over the past few years, and this trend is likely to sustain over the coming years. One of the major factors that can be attributed to this is the quick time, typically inside of 30 minutes, within which test results can be made available. This helps physicians in expediting the therapy process for individuals by prescribing the appropriate medications within a short period of time. Gone are the days when doctors had to rely on out-of-office laboratories, which more often than not took days, if not weeks, in processing and providing test results. Now, a clinical test using a sample from the patient can be performed within a physician's office, the specimen sent to an in-house laboratory and results obtained while the patient waits.

Rapid Medical Diagnostic Kits have also been finding increasing applications in home-based settings, more so in the areas of blood glucose testing/monitoring and pregnancy testing, with several companies offering easy-to-use home-based tests for a range of purposes. Developing regions of the world, such as countries in Asia-Pacific and South America, are taking the lead in home-based Rapid Medical Diagnostic Kits due to the convenience offered by them. Growing disposable incomes in these regions have led to rapid lifestyle changes among the population, which has been causing the onset of lifestyle diseases, such as diabetes. For instance, it is not feasible for an individual with diabetes, who has to undergo constant testing and monitoring for ascertaining her/his blood sugar levels on a daily basis, to make repeated trips to a clinic or hospital. Instead, she/he can self-perform the test using a home blood glucose monitoring kit within the four walls of her/his home and obtain the results within a matter of minutes, which can be conveyed to the physician for determining if any alteration in therapy is required.
