Toxicology Laboratories

Major companies in the Toxicology Laboratories industry include Abbott Laboratories (Abbott) and Quest Diagnostics Inc. (Quest Diagnostics), these two largest companies in the industry together account for a significant share of industry revenue. The main services of this industry are urine testing, hair testing, blood testing, saliva testing and others.

Mergers and acquisitions expand top companies' market share

- Quest Diagnostics has increased its market share in the industry through the acquisition of other drug testing companies. For instance, the company acquired Solstas Lab Partners Group and Summit Health Inc. in 2014. In 2015, Quest Diagnostics also purchased certain operations of MemorialCare Health System. Similarly, Abbott participates in the Toxicology Laboratories industry primarily through its business segment that was formerly Alere Toxicology Inc., which it acquired in 2017.

Companies compete on price, proximity, service and reputation

In recent years, there has been significant growth in the number of people participating in managed-care plans. Managed-care organizations have used their market power to negotiate lower prices for laboratory tests, including toxicology tests. As a result, this trend strengthens the industry's competition to offer low-priced toxicology tests.
