Biosensors are already commonly used in laboratories to test patients' samples. As technological advances allow for such tests to be conducted faster and on smaller devices, they are moving out of specialized laboratories and closer to the patient at the point-of-care (PoC). A shift in the PoC diagnostics market is also starting to emerge with the advent of PoC molecular diagnostics. As the addressable market for PoC biosensors expands due to a number of factors impacting the global population and technological innovations, the competitive landscape is changing.

Topics covered will include:
  • Commercial PoC biosensor categories (lateral flow assays, electrochemical test strips, integrated cartridges, and molecular diagnostics)
  • Trends in this industry, and new technologies and devices that are likely to be highly disruptive to the in vitro diagnostics market
  • Recent examples in the medtech market
