Medical Microneedle Diagnostics: Devices, Targets, Technology & Markets is a comprehensive evaluation and analysis of the technology, markets and competitive landscape providing the driving force behind this evolving segment of the healthcare sector. The study is designed to provide drug company decision makers, developers, device designers, healthcare marketers, and supply chain participants with a detailed understanding of the economics, fabrication/manufacturing technologies, and commercial opportunities across the spectrum of microneedle diagnostic architectures, designs, classes and form factors. Provider organization business managers, healthcare administrators and investors will also benefit from this study 

Converging Factors Driving Medical Microneedle Diagnostics

Microneedle technology is attaining commercial viability at a time when healthcare providers are faced with new challenges as they assess ways to incorporate companion diagnostics into their practice areas. 

Microneedle technology has the potential to address the growing trend toward point of care diagnostics and ambulatory patient monitoring by allowing the precise detection of biomarkers and analytes in fluids and tissues located below the skin. To succeed, developers must refine the techniques available and in development for sampling very small quantities and/or concentrations of analytes and biomarkers and advance the design integration of microneedles into commercially viable diagnostic platform.
