These challenges have been caused by the reduction ofgovernment reimbursement rates for laboratory tests, cost-restraint measuresestablished by the managed care industry, and the continuing trend toward containmentof national health care costs. In order to survive in the future, it will be necessary forlabs to run more tests; test in fewer sites; operate with less equipment; maintain loweroperating costs; hire less skilled labor; and harness additional automation.Since Kalorama last looked at the market two years ago, new systems have beenintroduced, market share has shifted and alliances and mergers have concluded. Theseare some of the recent developments that are assessed in the report and considered inmarket projections: • Next-Generation vs. Traditional Systems • Labcyte and Allegro Combine Operations • Agilent Acquistion of Velocity • New Closed-Loop Smart Gripper • Tecan-VWR Alliance • New Sample Processing Platforms • High Throughput Flexibility • Robotics Research Lab Established • Hamilton Purchase of TekCel • Low Temperature Sample Storage
