Hemoglobin A1c Testing Markets

NEW YORK, March 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue:

Hemoglobin A1c Testing Markets

Hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) testing is the most recent major technology to have entered the diabetes testing market. As the global prevalence of diabetes mellitus continues to increase rapidly, with more than 366 million diabetics worldwide, hemoglobin A1c testing is now an essential assay in the diabetes testing repertoire. Its clinical utility and improvements in its accuracy and implementation of standardized protocols have translated into continued market growth.

This TriMark Publications report describes the specific market segment that encompasses hemoglobin A1c testing for diagnosing and monitoring diabetes. The study reviews all of the generally accepted clinical analytical methods that are currently in use today for measuring HbA1c levels. Moreover, it examines clinical measurement devices and reagents as utilized in hospitals, clinics, doctor's offices and at-home care locations. The report also analyzes almost all of the companies known to be marketing, manufacturing or developing hemoglobin A1c testing. Detailed tables and charts with sales forecasts and marketshare data are also included.
