The focus of this GEN Market & Tech Analysis report is our continuing coverage of this mass spectrometry space as its translating from research to clinic.

Highlights:

  • This report represents our fourth in this series wherein GEN documents the evolution of mass spectrometry from the research space toward deployment as a diagnostics tool.
  • In this report we document the instances where mass spectrometric-based detection has been utilized in the development of in vitro diagnostics (IVDs).
  • Also presented herein are the instances where mass spectrometric-based detection (readout) is being utilized in the microbiology space.
  • Taken together, these instances represent the market segments wherein mass spectrometry has made a successful transition from research to the clinic—i.e., toward clinical diagnostics.
