What are in vitro diagnostic reagents?

Good healthcare depends on the biological and clinical analysis of samples which provide consistently accurate diagnoses. Most of the medical devices which perform these analyses require in vitro diagnostic (IVD) reagents to deliver accurate results, enabling healthcare providers to dispense targeted treatment plans.

Why IVD reagents are so important

The analysis of saliva, blood, tissue, and other bodily fluids provides doctors with the critical information they need to give a medical diagnosis. It’s often the case that the medical devices which produce the results run continuously to meet service demand, so consistent reliability and accuracy of analysis is crucially important.

The efficient, high-quality manufacture, handling, and delivery of in vitro diagnostic reagents can therefore assist in reducing costs incurred through equipment downtime and improve service demand.
