Women's health is an area long shunned by pharmaceutical and diagnostic companies. But that is starting to change thanks to the successes of companies such as Cytyc and Digene, who have built successful testing franchises in the Ob/ Gyn market.

Of greatest interest are the so-called molecular tests since they offer the advantage of premium pricing.
