An in-vitro diagnostic test is performed outside of a human body in an artificial environment (e.g. laboratory). IVD is considered as an essential part of today's healthcare. The IVD products are broadly divided into three categories: reagents, analytical instruments and accessory products. IVD is widely used for diagnosis, monitoring of prescribed treatments and assessment of medical intervention, apart from others thereby contributing to availability of medical information regarding a patient. Furthermore, IVD allows earlier and more targeted treatment which in turn leads to reduced hospital stays and convalescences resulting in a healthier population and economic growth in the long run.
