What are IVDs

About us

In vitro diagnostic tests (IVDs) are tests conducted on samples such as blood or tissue that have been taken from the human body. These tests detect diseases or other conditions and help doctors decide the best treatment for their patients or check treatment is working effectively.

In vitro diagnostic tests allow doctors to diagnose and treat patients effectively.

Well known examples include the diabetes finger prick test and lateral flow tests, such as a pregnancy or Coronavirus test.
