If your company participates in the BIVDA Market Audit you will know that it produces by far the most detailed, accurate and timely UK IVD market statistics available. Recent huge impacts of the Covid-19 pandemic on our industry have been demonstrated in the most recent reports published.
Sometimes I hear that companies participate but their UK based managers are not even aware of it! If you think that may be true for you, just ask and we will be happy to let you know if your company submits data and who receives the reports back. If your company does not participate and you would like help in making a case for it to do so, again, please just ask. Participation is free for BIVDA members and training is available to help you with the process and the interpretation of the reports.
Hopefully you are in a company which does participate and you are aware of the reports produced. If so, please note that your data for 2020 is now due – PLEASE TRY TO GET THIS IN BY THE END OF JANUARY. The sooner all submissions are received the sooner you will receive your reports back.
The BIVDA Market Audit is also part of the Global Diagnostic Market Survey (GDMS) run by MedTech Europe (MTE). National figures are consolidated with country reports into the European IVD Market Statistics reports published each year. The 2021 report (containing analysis for 2019 and 2020) has just been published and is available through the MTE website or from us at BIVDA.
For any questions or assistance do not hesitate to contact us.
