Rapid diagnosis is crucial for saving lives. New regulations, changing reimbursement laws, and technology advancements are all focusing on making tests accurate, operationally efficient, portable, and easy to use.

The stakeholders need to be abreast of the challenges posed by the industry as well as anticipate new avenues of growth to innovate new business models and capitalize on the transformation that the market is undergoing. It is pertinent to understand key convergences that drive infectious disease POCT sector growth and the technological building blocks that contribute to the future functionality of this market.
