DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Apr 25, 2018--The "Infectious Disease Diagnostics Market by Product & Service, Disease Type, Technology, End User - Global Forecast to 2022" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.The global infectious disease diagnostics market is expected to reach USD 19.35 billion by 2022 from USD 14.73 billion in 2017, at a CAGR of 5.6%.Growth in this market can primarily be attributed to factors such as increasing global prevalence of infectious diseases, shift in focus from centralized laboratories to decentralized point-of-care testing, and growth in funding for research on infectious disease diagnostics. However, inadequate reimbursement and rising healthcare cost limiting usage of novel diagnostic technologies are expected to restrain the growth of this market during the forecast period.Based on product & service, the infectious disease diagnostics market is segmented into assays, kits, & reagents; instruments; and services & … [Read more...] about Infectious Disease Diagnostics Market by Product & Service, Disease Type, Technology, End User
Scientists have created a device the size of a smartphone that will allow doctors to quickly and accurate assess patients for multiple common viral and bacterial infections. A team from Washington State University has developed a low-cost, portable laboratory on a phone that can detect common viral and bacterial infections nearly as well as clinical laboratories, a discovery which could yield faster and lower-cost lab results for fast-moving viral and bacterial epidemics. The researchers found that the portable smartphone reader could detect 12 common viral and bacterial infectious diseases, including mumps, measles, herpes, and Lyme Disease. They tested the device on 771 patient samples at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania and found it provided false positives only about one percent of the time. The device is able to take a photo of 96 sample wells at once, while most mobile health diagnostic devices can only analyze one sample at a time. The researchers then used a … [Read more...] about Handheld Device Can Quickly Test for Common Infectious Diseases
source Reuters/Thomas Peter Barclays said Tuesday that the crypto craze has clear parallels to the spread of infectious disease. The bank made a model of a theoretical speculative asset based on the techniques epidemiologists use to track diseases. Bitcoin’s actual price history shows plenty of similarities to the model’s predictions. Bitcoin’s peak price may also have passed, the bank said. You can track the price of bitcoin in real-time here. The crypto craze that swept the world this past winter spread much like epidemiologists would expect an infectious disease to circulate, according to new research from Barclays. Analysts at the bank made a model of a theoretical speculative asset based on the types of models epidemiologists use to track diseases. The analysts compared the model’s predictions to bitcoin’s … [Read more...] about Bitcoin mania has ‘clear parallels’ to the spread of infectious diseases
Imagine a small paper device that can rapidly reveal from a drop of blood whether an infection is bacterial or viral. The device could help reduce the overuse of antibiotics – which kill bacteria, not viruses. Misuse of antibiotics has led to antimicrobial resistance, a growing global public health issue. Senior biomedical engineering students at Rutgers University–New Brunswick came up with the idea for the technology as part of their senior design project. The concept won second place and $50,000 in the Massachusetts General Hospital Ambulatory Practice of the Future 2017 Student Technology Prize for Primary Healthcare competition. The Rutgers team, including seniors Charles Rabolli, Neel Nirgudkar, Sarah Salter and Sudeepti Vedula, is advised by Adam J. Gormley, an assistant professor in the Department of Biomedical Engineering in the School of Engineering. “We feel so honored to be given the opportunity with this award to flesh out an idea that we think … [Read more...] about Could a Paper Device Diagnose Infectious Disease?
