Chemistry Analyzers

April 2019 - Vol. 8 No. 4 - Page #9

The vast majority of clinical laboratories use some type of automated chemistry analyzer, and most of these (85%) are medium and high-volume instruments. That said, some facilities also utilize low-volume instruments to supplement core chemistry functions.

Chemistry analyzers receive solid satisfaction ratings, and there is a deep market offering well-rated chemistry automation solutions. Test availability is the leading factor in choosing a new chemistry system for the majority of laboratories planning new acquisitions.

Facilities are planning to acquire new chemistry analyzers at a rather even pace over the next 5 years.

Acquisition activity is projected to occur among facilities of all sizes, with mid-size facilities (100-400 beds) particularly committed to new purchases.

Facilities considering acquiring a new chemistry analyzer are typically reviewing the options from multiple vendors. Leading the vendors under consideration are Siemens, Roche Diagnostics, Beckman Coulter, Abbott, and Ortho Clinical Diagnostics.
