Educational paper: An introduction to diagnostic testing in laboratories

In this overview, we describe different diagnostic assays and explain why they are important for laboratories in various settings. We discuss potential areas for growth in the use of laboratory developed tests, as well as what a laboratory must do to implement one. We also describe more traditional IVD tests that are approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the role of IVD tests in the U.S. healthcare system, and some of the potential benefits associated with them. Finally, we review regulations that that must be understood by IVD manufacturers and laboratories that offer LDTs.
