Top 10 list of molecular diagnostics companies based on molecular-related revenues in 2012.
The following 10 names are the molecular-diagnostics industry’s heaviest hitters. Listed in descending order, these 10 firms brought in the greatest molecular-related revenues in 2012. (Update May 15, 2013: An error regarding Digene's ownership has been corrected.)
If you follow this industry, there won’t be any enormous surprises here. Bruce Carlson, Publisher, Kalorama Information, points out that these are the 10 companies “that have almost always showed up” on the list of molecular diagnostics’ biggest names.
