Diagnostics industry warned over inaction on UN (United Nations) transport rules

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

Despite earlier warnings of the implications that impending stricter transportation rules are threatening the market for diagnostic samples that have to be delivered to laboratories for testing, industry is still not taking the threat seriously and has not been active in lobbying for change. Yet, if the forthcoming rules agreed by the United Nations in December 2000 are not modified they could discourage doctors from taking samples that need to be transported for testing. The development, however, is likely to encourage more near-patient testing.
