Qiagen Buys Molecular Staging: Stalking PCR

Although scientific and clinical interest in molecular diagnostics is at an all-time high, companies are still struggling to find the right business model for the field.

Roche Diagnostics' New Marker Mandate

Roche Diagnostics is the best performing asset at Roche. As the troubled Swiss pharma company suffers through its worst pipeline drought in a decade, Roche Diagnostics is delivering a stellar performance. It is strong across all business segments, from laboratory systems to diabetes to molecular testing. Its challenge: to pull far enough ahead in its traditional businesses to maintain a comfortable lead. Its bigger hurdle, however, is to position itself as a leader in adoption of new genomic and proteomic diagnostic technologies, which is where the industry's future growth lies.
