Hospital and private laboratories have been surveyed to collect information on NA tests performed, test volumes and used platforms and reagents. For data reliability and accurate projections at segment level a 3 step methodology has been applied:
Step 1: Identification of the total number of laboratories by secondary research and short telephone interviews with 910 hospitals to verify existence of internal laboratories.
Step 2: 1,350 laboratories in France were classified for NAT activity and overall NA test volume.
Step 3: 94 laboratories provided data on NA test volume, kits, platforms and trends. A list of 44 NA tests have been provided to the labs for structured data entry. All data has been analysed and projected at total market level. Data is available by test and country.
