Italy devotes 3.4% of healthcare expenditure to laboratory diagnostics, according to Professor Paolo Mocarelli, president of FISMeLab. Speaking at an Assobiomedica meeting held in late 1995, he said that this is close to average in Europe. Germany's laboratory spending reaches 4% of total, compared with 2% in Greece and Portugal. An average of 17 laboratory tests per person are carried out each year in Italy, Prof Mocarelli told the Italian industry association meeting.
