The "The
IVD Market in the Middle East"
report has been added to's

This report on the Middle East IVD in the last five years finds the
Middle East remains as an underserved region with large market potential.

Many Middle Eastern countries, such as Saudi Arabia, have identified
investment in healthcare infrastructure as a priority, the goal to
