Reagent rental figures shock Italian government

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

More than 14,000 instruments had been installed in Italian laboratories under reagent rental plan agreements as of December 31st, 1994, according to a report in Il Sole-24 Ore. Evidence from records of materials used with 7,779 instruments showed that over 5,200 had been supplied on condition that the health authority purchased materials or reagents from the same equipment supplier. These preliminary results of a survey conducted by a Health Ministry committee into the extent of reagent rental plans indicate wider usage than expected. The figures do not include Sicily, where magistrates first began investigating the legality of this business practice.
