Histology – Cancer Diagnostics based on Tissue/Biopsies
Cytology – Cancer Diagnostics based on Cells
Serious and final diagnostics of cancer or precancerous situations are only possible in using either cells or the tissue. Other diagnostics methods are generally an addition but not a replacement of it. The trend towards more personalized treatment of cancer need the original cell or tissue sample for creating and testing the best alternative. This segment will therefore be increasingly important for future development of strategies to fight the “cancer epidemic” (WHO) with an expected about 50 % increase in cancer cases worldwide within the next 20 years.
The general industry trends are Higher Automation for more throughput in bigger laboratories, Process Standardization, Digitalization of cell and tissue slides and Computer Aided Diagnostic Systems, earlier diagnostics of cancer combined in cost effective solutions. Most governments in the world are planning to increase their investments in better cancer detection but try to keep their health care spendings
