5 Things to Keep in Mind When Trying to Reverse Engineer Adhesive

In Brief:

The process of reverse engineering is demanding work: an analyst initially works with limited information about a product and uses that information to analyze it to discover its composition. When reverse engineering is performed for a product that has a chemical composition--as compared to a machine or a software program--the process is also referred to as deformulation. The major and minor components of the composition are separated and broken down in order to be identified.

Current IVD Industry Trends & Technologies: Faster, Smarter, & More Personalized

In Brief

According to a 2016 report in PLoS One, between 60 and 70% of medical decisions are made based on the results of in vitro diagnostics (IVD) testing. Using the evaluation of specimens taken directly from the human body, in vitro diagnostics are utilized to diagnose illness and disease. Market segments for the in vitro diagnostics market include instruments, reagents, and software related to diagnostics.
