The report explores future marketing and technological trends in five major European countries (France, Germany, Italy, Spain, UK); provides market share estimates, test volume forecasts, and instrument placements; compares features of leading analyzers; profiles of top competitors and emerging market entrants; and suggests specific product and marketing opportunities for instrument and reagent suppliers. During the next five years, the continued advances in molecular diagnostics, monoclonal antibodies, lasers and IT, as well as growing understanding of immunological forces regulating systemic diseases, will have a profound impact on the hematology and flow cytometry markets worldwide.

New molecular diagnostic and monoclonal antibody tests will facilitate existing procedures and provide basis for sensitive, specific and simple assays. The introduction of smaller and easy-to-operate laser systems will expand applications of flow cytometry to routine clinical laboratories. Further advances in IT will reduce the cost of instrument manufacture, service warranty, and permit development of innovative self-troubleshooting, autocalibration and other advanced features. Presently tedious analyses of chromosomal abnormalities, DNA content, and lymphocyte subsets will become more automated and routine.
