BLOG – World Health Organization (WHO) Publishes First List of Essential IVD Tests

May 28, 2018 - Blog, Industry News

The World Health Organization (WHO) has published its first Model List of Essential In Vitro Diagnostics (IVD), a catalog of tests needed to diagnose the most common conditions and global priority diseases. The list contains 113 products. For each category of test, the essential diagnostics list specifies the type and format of the test, its intended use, and whether the test is appropriate for primary healthcare settings or for health facilities with laboratories. The list also provides links to WHO guidelines and publications and, where available, to prequalified products. 

JADAK’s barcode, machine vision and RFID products provide detection and analysis solutions in many IVD devices around the world.
