The "UK Microbiology Market Forecasts and Supplier Shares 2017-2021: Emerging Opportunities and Growth Strategies for Instrument and Reagent Suppliers" report has been added to's offering.

A new strategic analysis of major business opportunities will emerge in the infectious disease testing market during the next five years.

This comprehensive report will assist diagnostics industry executives, as well as companies planning to diversify into the dynamic and rapidly expanding microbiology testing market, by evaluating emerging opportunities and developing effective business strategies.

Microbiology testing is one of the most rapidly growing segments of the in vitro diagnostics industry, and the greatest challenge facing suppliers during this decade. Among the main driving forces is the continuing spread of AIDS, which remains the world's major health threat and a key factor contributing to the rise of opportunistic infections, the threat of bioterrorism, advances in molecular diagnostic technologies, and the wider availability of immunosuppressive drugs.

Although for some infections the etiology is still a mystery, for others the causative microorganisms are present in minute concentrations long before the occurrence of first clinical symptoms, and recent advances in genetic engineering and detection technologies are creating exciting opportunities for highly sensitive, specific and cost-effective products.
